I wanted to share two wonderful experiences I had that make me so proud of our club and its members.
First, I attended the Memorial Day Ceremony at Monument Point in Heisler Park on Monday, May 29 to honor those who have given their lives for our country.
Our very own Polly Dix decorated the gorgeous rosebush that Ruben Flores procured for us to give (to be planted it in the Sister Cities Garden). Please see the poem “Flanders Field.”
Secondly, on Tuesday I had to pleasure to hand deliver the Apple Gift Card to the young man from Laguna Beach High School for whom we collected donations to purchase a computer for his use next fall when he attends Northern Arizona State University to study Environmental Science. He was totally surprised (to say the least), overwhelmed, and very excited to purchase his new Apple computer.
Once again Laguna Beach Garden Club is an extraordinary group because of its extraordinary of members, of whom I am honored to represent.
Enjoy your summer and see you in September.
