Shirley Cole's company appreciated by Reece Farm in North Georgia


Shirley Cole, Netwest member from Jackson County, was recently applauded in the Byron Herbert Reece Society newsletter. Shirley served as a representative for NCWN in Jackson County recently, but is now busy writing a novel. 

Changes in the Landscape 
Thanks to the ongoing contributions of Shirley Cole and her son Shannon of COLE  AND  COMPANY, MASTER LANDSCAPE GARDENERS, INC., visitors to the Reece Farm will notice another landscape change in and around the light pole in the parking area.  Three golden Hinoke Cypress trees have been planted there along with the placement of small boulders from other Farm locations.  Other plantings in this area are underway.  

Also, Shirley and Shannon found an ancient “cemetery rose” growing along the railroad tracks in Marietta.  The rose is pale pink and very hardy and has been planted behind the split rail fence at the end of the parking lot.  It should bloom in the spring and hopefully will help replace the lost rose so treasured by Reece’s mother Emma.

The Wordsmiths of Macon County

The Wordsmiths of Macon County met December 5,2013, at the Macon County Library and had a great time, from the sounds of this report from our Macon County Representative, Shirley Cole. 

"Sixteen guests  and poets were present, and 12 to 15 pieces of original  poems were read and discussed. We had four young guests, who heard Eugene Field's poem "The Duel' about the gingham dog and the calico cat. Everyone giggled and afterward the children approached me and thanked me for inviting them and sharing our  gingerbread cookies with them. We may be on to something! Mrs. Moe, the head of the library, suggested to me that perhaps we would like to share our poetry with the children often. I agreed and am going to include  a section of our next meeting for our children to bring us ''LOVE  POEMS'' AND will send the Library small posters to display. OUR NEXT READING IS IN February and I am searching for  funny poems to read to our children. I will encourage them to write some cursive if they so desire. The library received  another donation from us as a thank you for allowing us to read. But, I think that they are very thrilled to have us."

Thank you, Shirley, for this great report, and for all you are doing to increase literary awareness, especially for children, in Macon County. I've no doubt that the library is very appreciative.
