Arbor Day project with New Hanover Garden Club
The New Hanover Garden Club of Wilmington,one of the newest clubs in the state (ratified last September), completed their first project by planting a tree on Arbor Day. Friday, April 24th, the club members, with the help of two members’ husbands to dig the hole, planted a 10 gallon Red Bud in the garden at The Lower Cape Fear Hospice. The tree is located right outside of the patients’ rooms, and will be a source of beauty and shade for years to come.

A letter from the New Hanover GC to District 11 Director Linda McLendon
( New Hanover GC is a new club this year)
Thank YOU! I can’t tell you how excited I am about our new club! In my opinion, I believe there has been a ‘need’ for another club in our area for quite some time, and I am truly humbled to have this opportunity to address that need through the New Hanover Garden Club. For me, gardening is more than a hobby but a love! It’s a source of personal peace, satisfaction, wonderful therapy and fellowship with God, so I welcome the opportunity to introduce and share these benefits with others. It is an honor and a privilege for me and our club members to be part of District 11 and garden clubs in the great State of North Carolina! Thank you for your willingness to assist us in any way, and I look forward to meeting you soon.
Blessings to you,
