Hanover Highlands butterfly garden dedicated in custodian’s memory

Family, friends and Hanover Highlands Elementary staff gathered after school May A boy holds a butterfly23 to dedicate the school’s growing butterfly garden in the name of Glenn Markgraf. A memorial plaque was installed in the garden, and painted lady butterflies were released.

A building custodian for 13 years, Glenn spread his love of gardening and the environment to the students and worked closely with the school’s Environmental Club. When the butterfly garden initiative began, Glenn helped out however he could, taking care of the garden throughout the year including over the summer. His love of the environment was also reflected in the school’s composting initiative.
