It was sad to read that the flower beds in front of City Hall on South Catawba Street must be removed. Many of us recall, through the years, the hours Jo Williams spent lovingly caring for the beds and roses. She devoted much of her life to the beautification and historical preservation of Lancaster.
I hope that some of the roses she planted, or at least one, can be retained and displayed in memory of Jo Williams, the “Rose Lady.”
Old-fashioned is still beautiful!
