Bouquets at the streetside table
for a donation to the Senior Center

Ridgecrest resident John Hibbs' 75 varieties of dahlias are still producing gorgeous blooms. In fact, he just fertilized them to make them produce more.

He is still placing multi-colored bouquets at his streetside table at 11th NE and NE 158th in return for a donation to the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center. He will continue as long as his dahlias are blooming. (see previous article)

Now there is another place to pick up a bouquet. The Ridgecrest Public House, 520 NE 165th St in the small business district for the Ridgecrest Neighborhood, is now displaying John's blooms.

"The place looks like a wedding," laughed owner Megan Kogut.

The Ridgecrest Public House - before dahlias

Megan Kogut and Jared Swalwell are taking ten bouquets a week for the pub and donating to the Senior Center fund. If customers want to donate, they can take home a bouquet.

John is elated. "Combining the stand and the Ridgecrest Pub we've collected about $350 for the Senior Center in the first two weeks!!"

John would be happy to supply another nearby business - perhaps in North City.
