Drift family has actively been involved in the business and community
life of Montgomery Township since the establishment of Dutchtown
Nursey in 1961. Frank Drift, the founder and principle owner of
Dutchtown, has over 40 years of experience in all aspects of Dutchtowns'
Drift's service to the Montgomery Township community is legendary.
He has held public office on several occasions, and currently serves
as an active member on the Townships Health Department Board. He
was a recent founder of the Montgomery News, a 'not for profit'
newspaper for the local community.
Montgomery Rodeo, hosted by Frank, Noel and the rest of the Drift
family, stands as a testament to the dedication and devotion that
the family has for the community. Over the past seven years, the
rodeo has raised over $350,000 for local organizations. Through
the efforts of the Drift family and a core of volunteers, this money
has been used to support the needs of two local volunteer fire companies,
Emergency Medical Services, the Patrolman's Benevolent Association,
youth recreation leagues and the booster club. Dutchtown Nursery
can always be counted on to donate its resources to the benefit
of the community. On a national level, Dutchtown has organized and
hosted several benefits for St. Judes Childrens Hospital. It is
clear that the Drift family feels strongly about the community in
which they live and work, as they have clearly demonstrated their
willingness to support local and national causes of importance.
