While many former students of recently retired Bellefontaine High School band director Joe Antram know he is well-versed and talented in the musical realm, they may not be aware of his passion and experience with gardening, which was evident Friday during day three of the open class flower competition. 

He and his wife, Marianne, received four blue ribbons between them for their rose entries, with Mr. Antram winning a queen of the roses award for his white rose with pink highlights called a double delight.

In previous years, the couple has entered the flower contest together at the Logan County Fair, but recently had a six-year hiatus after moving from Bellefontaine to the Lewistown area. 

“It’s taken about five years to get our flower beds in order; they’re located in a former cornfield,” Mr. Antram explained. “We’re very pleased now to have a nice inventory of roses. 

“We’ve always been gardeners, both flower gardeners and vegetable gardeners. We love to share our vegetables with family and neighbors. It’s been a fun hobby to share together over the years.”
