1999 - Individual Achievement Awards - Beautification & Landscaping - Herb & Jeannie Abts


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!
