Volunteers with the JGC have gotten to work helping to beautify the grounds near the Pioneer Home. In late April they scrubbed and scraped an aging greenhouse, which was donated in the 90s by the State Governor at the time. Now, fresh shoots of begonias are beginning to pop up and plans are being made on what other vegetables and flowers may flourish in the greenhouse’s balmy interior.

The Juneau Pioneer Home will be spruced up in the coming year; the Legislature approved $60,000 for grounds cleanup and more than $100,000 for deferred maintenance at the state run organization, which opened in 1988.
