FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Aboite Elementary School students and local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts kicked off the Aboite Garden project Saturday with a tribute to a longtime volunteer.
Six beds designed by Homestead High School engineering students were constructed at Aboite Memorial Gardens in memory of Lynette Akin.
Akin died unexpectedly last summer. The garden is a way for those who knew Akin, and her volunteerism, to have a lasting memory of her service to the community. Her children attend or have attended Aboite Elementary School.
Volunteers will share the care of the garden for the next year.
