The Hope Beautification Award
Don Hope, and his wife Edwina, moved to their 4th Avenue home
in the College Park neighborhood within a year of their marriage
in 1951. Both were graduates of the University and built a home
behind Edwina's mother, in the shadow of Florida Field. They
continued to live in this home and raise four children and Edwina
remains in the home today. Don held many jobs at the City of
Gainesville over the years and was a Financial Analyst for
Gainesville Regional Utilities when he retired. He had a great
fondness for flowers, shrubs and other plants and was a member
of the city's Camilla Society for many years. Don could also be
seen carefully tending to his own yard as well as the yards of
rental property in College Park owned by his son. Don passed
away three years ago on October 11. The Hope Beautification
Award was established in his honor by the University Park
Neighborhood Association as a means to recognize neighbors in
College Park who take significant steps to improve the attractive-
ness of their lawns. The Off Campus Life Great Gator Neighbor
for January was the recipient of this award last semester.
