Local 4-H Members Plant Daffodils at Clinton House Museum
Fayetteville, Ark. – Local members of the youth development organization 4-H recently planted over 1,500 daffodil bulbs at the Clinton House Museum.
Brent & Becky’s Bulbs, of Gloucester, Virginia, donated the bulbs. They have donated over 100,000 bulbs for community beautification in Fayetteville. Brent and Becky learned of Fayetteville from Carl Totemeier, one of the founders of the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks. According to Cindi Cope, Chair of the Fayetteville in Bloom Program, 14,000 additional bulbs were recently purchased to be planted around Fayetteville in various locations, including the Headquarters House and the Fayetteville Public Library.
“It was the vision of the late Carl Totemeier,” said Cope, “that Fayetteville be known as the City of Daffodils. We’re trying to complete that vision.”
The Clinton House Museum was the first home of both former President William Jefferson Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
