Woman's Club Builds Garden Honoring Robin Carlson
Garden is an addition to the Creative Playground.
Carlson was a teacher at White Rock School, who died of cancer at the age of 31.
The money for the project came as a result of funds the club raised at its annual Wrobo Run. The club has sponsored the run for several years, and in 2005 renamed it after 2nd Lt. J.T. Wroblewski, who was killed in Iraq in 2004.
“Usually when we raise the money we just write a check for a cause we’ve chosen,” said Kimberley Reid of the Juniors Club. “This year we decided to do something different and work on the garden in Robin’s name. She was an amazing teacher, and we are very proud that we chose her as our cause this year.”
Reid noted that local Girl Scout troops will be making benches for the area, and that a plaque honoring Carlson will be in place soon.
