    for her service to the Friends of
    Historic Boonville, especially the
    Hain House," Boonville Woman's

    About five years ago, the
    Boonville Woman's Club decided
    to get oral history fromwomen living
    in the town who were really
    important to the area. Long was
    featured in this oral history project.
    During the party, Long was
    given a birthday cake along with
    many words of gratitude for her
    continued service.

    to honor Long for her service, especially
    in the very gardens she devoted
    much time to.
