Frankly, it's been years since Mabery Park in the center of Advance looked this good; in fact, it may never have looked this good before! The city has spent money replacing aging trees, and the descendants of Joshua Mabery paid for a classy granite sign to replace the one with the broken letters. Master Gardener LuAnn Abner, a volunteer, has spent many hours planting and tending the flowers (not visible). This fall, the trees rewarded us with brilliant red and yellow leaves!
