Years after her death, Hope Stout’s legacy remains

In the fall of 2003, our family collected handfuls of acorns at Colonel Beatty Park in Matthews. We sealed them in a plastic container and tucked them away in the back of the refrigerator to simulate the winter that acorns require before they will germinate. It was to be a lesson in forestry for our 8-, 6- and 3-year old kids that would turn into much larger lessons about life and thanksgiving.
