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.

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 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.
