Roses to Monica Tynes, the Hampton’s activities director, who has the difficult task of keeping the residents active and entertained. Had planned a bus tour of the azalea district on the second weekend of the tour and was dismayed when the guide had a family emergency and had to go home. She called upon a long-time friend and former co-worker at the chamber who very graciously agreed to fill in.
Mr. Benson’s knowledge of Tyler history and facts about the azalea trail along with the expertise of long-time bus driver, John Young, made for a very interesting and exceptional tour of the beautiful homes, lawns and gardens of the Tyler Azalea trail.
Good job, Monica.
