Virginia’s First Lady Cuts Ribbon For Glebe Reading Garden

Virginia First Lady Maureen McDonnell was at Glebe Elementary today as school, county and state officials helped to mark the opening of a new “reading garden.”

McDonnell used garden shears to cut a ceremonial ribbon as a crowd of about 50 adults and students applauded.

The reading garden was opened with the help of more than 100 parents, students, teachers and neighbors. It involved 200 planning hours, six dump truck loads of mulch and $22,000 in donations.

Joining McDonnell were state delegate Bob Brink, school board chair Sally Baird, superintendent Dr. Pat Murphy and county board members Barbara Favola and Mary Hughes Hynes.
