WRAL Azaleas Beautify Cumberland County

Posted November 3, 1997 12:00 a.m. EST

— Autumn has definitely arrived, but despite cooler temperatures, some say it's perfect weather for planting. Monday workers at Honeycutt Elementary in Cumberland County dug up dirt and patted it down as they put 100 azaleas into the ground.

The flowering plants were donated by WRAL and the "Keep North Carolina Clean and Beautiful" program. Each year the partnership gives thousands of plants away to non-profit organizations.
