Sowing seeds of appreciation

November 4, 2022

The Council of Garden Clubs will be presenting a certificate of appreciation to Rejeana Loper, a supervisor in the parks and recreation department, in honor of her years of dedicated service to the City of Laurel. Loper has been with the city for the last 12 years and during that time, she has built a reputation for being the hardest worker in town. “You can’t imagine all the work she did in all the parks,” Pam Oglesby, Secretary of the Council of Garden Clubs said. Over the years, as the garden clubs have worked to beautify the city’s parks, Loper has been a welcome member of the team. “She would always be there leading the way and so cheerful! She’s the most hardworking person I’ve ever seen,” Oglesby said. Bette Green, President of the Council of Garden Clubs, and Oglesby will be sending the certificate of appreciation to Loper to let her know how much she means to them and their organization. Earlier this year, Loper’s work was also recognized by Laurel Main Street who provided her with a lifetime membership and a plaque demonstrating their appreciation.

The City of Laurel, established as a lumber town in 1882, is conveniently situated approximately two hours from larger destination cities such as Jackson, Biloxi, New Orleans, and Mobile. In recent years, the city has become a destination all its own thanks, in part, to its starring role in HGTV’s popular “Hometown” series. As Laurel, and interest in it, continues to grow, we are committed to providing the resources necessary to help all of our residents and businesses reach their full potential.
