Scottsburg Beautification grant (2)

Scott County Community Foundation Board Treasurer L.L. Lowry, right, presents a check for $1,500 to City of Scottsburg Parks Department Director Jerry Asher. The grant was awarded from the Scottsburg Beautification Committee Endowment Fund, which was established in 1997 through a bequest from Otis Collier and is used to provide ongoing maintenance at the Otis Collier Memorial Garden. Otis was a long-time employee of Morgan Foods, a past Scottsburg Warrior basketball coach, and someone who loved gardening and was known for his beautiful rose gardens. After his death, the Scottsburg Beautification Committee created the garden at Lake Iola in his memory.
