It's always a treat to welcome Mr. Albert Miller Jr. to the DBHS! He shared with us today that last week he received an honor for being the oldest living Eagle Scout in Palm Beach County! His father, Albert Miller, started the scout program in 1914 in Delray Beach, with Troop 1!

The GLADS are coming! The great thing about offering Gladiola bulbs (corms) this year, is, like our Facebook friend Kate said, "if we all plant the bulbs, it will link us all together!" Can you imagine Delray Beach abloom with Glads year after year?! See you in our booth at the Delray Affair Fri, Sat & Sun! Corner of Swinton & Atlantic. History Exhibit, Glads & More!
