Memorials

Our Club provides the opportunity to build friendships through the common bond and love of gardening. Over the years, working on projects together, we have become a family that is dedicated to bringing the beauty of the garden to our town. When one of our members passes, we feel a great loss and wish to honor them by giving a memorial to the town in their name. Some of the ways that we do this are tree and shrub plantings, donating benches in the town or giving horticultural books to our public library.

 

By clicking the tab above on the left-hand, you will find listings of memorials that document this honor for our active deceased members.
