The Nelson County Garden Club 

Founded 1935 

       Memorial Service May 1, 2015

Our May 1 meeting was dedicated to the memory of eight of our deceased members.  Each one was honored in turn by a club member who knew her. Family and friends were invited to attend, and a planting was made inn their honor. The program took place in the Memorial Garden to the right of the library with Reverend Mark Furlow of Trinity Episcopal Church officiating.  At the end of the service, it began to rain.  "Tears from Heaven," said Reverend Furlow.
