Lorraine (Mitchell) Dacko was raised in Bridgewater and Plymouth, NH and graduated from Plymouth High School. She then moved to Massachusetts to further her education and ended up staying there for the next 44 years! While living there, she met and married her husband Bob and raised two children, one who lives in Massachusetts and the other, Rhode Island. The Dackos lived in Bow briefly in the late 1970’s, however moved back to Massachusetts to be closer to the family business. In 2005, they retired to New Hampshire where they had old friends waiting for them and quickly made more.
Lorraine gained a love of gardening early on following her mother around as she tended her many perennial beds throughout the growing season and Lorraine remembers there always being something in bloom from April through October. Her Dad was an avid vegetable gardener who preserved his garden’s bounty for the winter months which the family really appreciated.
Lorraine joined the Bow Garden Club shortly upon moving into her new home in Dunbarton. And at the urging of a Bow friend and because she was interested in learning more about gardening, now having a large yard to landscape, Lorraine joined the Bow Garden Club right away. We, the members of the Bow Garden Club, are so glad that Lorraine came back to the area, not only because she is a great person to be with, but because she has facilitated a number of projects for us and has served as our Membership Chairman, Treasurer and most recently Vice-President. Lorraine was installed as Bow Garden Club President for the 2019-2020 term at the club’s December Annual Meeting. Welcome on board, Lorraine!
