An elderly couple in Vinton took it upon themselves to clean up the landscaping area around the Vinton Library recently. They pulled every single weed by hand! I know this because it was my brother and sister-in-law, Lowell and Mary Ellen Mahr. They didn't tell anyone they were planning to do this or they would've had helpers, like myself!
Vinton has had a big, ugly, negative spotlight on them recently regarding our library but we can't forget that our town is filled with amazing, generous, caring folks, like Lowell and Mary Ellen.
Drive by the library and check out their hard work and if you see Lowell or Mary Ellen, give them a big thank you! They have the biggest hearts!
