The Kettermans receive Garden of the Month honor Home style

The Gettysburg Garden Club, through its Garden of the Month Committee, presents the September Award to Hatty and Paul Ketterman, of 130 Rodes Avenue.

Paul and Hattie Ketterman have lived in the house at the corner of Rodes Avenue and Hoke Drive since 1976. The large pines lining the back of the property were planted at that time, as were the beautiful dogwoods growing near the front of the house. In the spring, the dogwood bears small clusters of flowers with four pink petal-like bracts in the middle. Soon there will be small red fruits, or “drops,” so called because the peel of the fruit is hard, not smooth, unlike raspberries. Birds and squirrels will enjoy these kernels or berries.
