WESLY CHAPEL – A commitment to patriotism and community pride by Diana Bowler has resulted in the addition of a flag pole at Dogwood Park.
Eagle Scout Landon Clouse helped install the pole as his service project. It was dedicated during the Fall Bash Festival on Oct. 27.
Bowler, a Realtor in the Allen Tate Providence@485/Union County office, was selected in 2016 as a Volunteer Works $1,000 grant recipient through the National Association of Realtors Good Neighbor Program, to fund the project.
Bowler has worked 17 years in real estate, including six with Allen Tate. She is active in Wesley Chapel Friends of Parks and Recreation. She has coordinated and helped with events to promote Dogwood Park and the Village of Wesley Chapel.
“I’ve helped to coordinate events in Wesley Chapel since 2010 and always included the National Anthem at the start of every event. We had to improvise with someone holding a flag,” Bowler said. “Now, when the community comes together, recognition will be given to those who have served our country and fought for the freedoms we have today.”
