HERB & JEANNIE ABTS - Choctaw
You've heard now about the community-wide effort to beautify NE 23rd
street in Choctaw and you know that the initial vision was that of
Jeannie Abts. Jeannie and her husband Herb are being honored tonight
for that vision and their driving force behind the project. Each put in
long hours working the soil, weeding, researching.
Jeannie actually made the metal sculptures with the artistic
help of Susan Johnson and assistance from the Choctaw Fire Department
with the metal cutting, welding and installation. Now that the gardens
are finished and so much-appreciated, the Abts have not let down for a
moment. You'll find the two of them tending the gardens, mowing,
watering whatever it takes four and five days every week. IT'S A SPECIAL BRAND OF LOVE OF COMMUNITY - HERB AND JEANNIE ABTS ARE GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA'S ENVIRONMENT!
