The Pinecrest Garden Club got their 15 minutes of fame recently as the focus of an “Alerte Verde” (“Green Alert”) segment on Telemundo 51. The segment focused on the work the club does at Pinecrest Gardens. “The whole reason for the story was to find volunteers for the garden, to help keep the gardens beautiful, or maybe retired people or students who can give tours,” says Garden Club President Ines Mander. A native of Nicaragua, Mander did the interview with Telemundo entirely in Spanish. Well, maybe not entirely. “I sometimes could not remember that Spanish word for something. ‘If you forget the word just say it in English,’ they said. ‘Everyone is Spanglish here.’” Also featured was Garden Club member Christian Armstrong.
