Her friends were legion and they would all agree that to know Betty Jean Pratt was to love her. Her smile was infectious and the energy with which she attacked every project amazing. The return of Betty's cancer and the difficult course of treatment was like a cloud that covered all of us. On April 6 Betty Jean lost her battle and we lost a good and true friend. It is hard to imagine our community without Betty Jean and her dedication to pet projects such as the Hillsboro Recreation Association. If I close my eyes I can still hear her say, "Hey, it's for the kids!" Betty will always be a part of us and our community..
Mark your calendars for the annual plant sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 3 at the Center For Living and Learning located at 1979 Old Hillsboro Road.
