John Hibbs and his dahlias will benefit the Senior Center

Ridgecrest resident John Hibbs appreciates dahlias - so much so that he has 75 varieties in his yard.

He also appreciates the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center and knows what a tight budget they have.

Bouquets of dahlias from Hibbs' home garden

So John had a great idea. Offer bouquets of his beautiful dahlias in return for a donation to the Senior Center.

The table is at 11th NE and NE 158th

He put a table in the parking strip in front of his home on the NW corner of 11th Ave NE and NE 158th in Shoreline and made fresh dahlia blooms available by donation (cash / check only), with proceeds to go to Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center.

John puts out fresh blooms every day

John says that the first afternoon the table launched, it generated five donations within a couple of hours.

It's still blooming season and he still has many beautiful bouquets - and it's for a very good cause.

How wonderful. John has always been so generous and has such a big heart. Thank-you John for continuing to inspire! And those dahlias...so lovely.
