ARBOR DAY TRIBUTE 2020
Like many Garden Club events this Spring, NIGC Arbor Day 2020, planned for March 19th, was cancelled due to Covid19. In lieu of the memorial, Jodi and Lauren dropped off white Phalaenopsis orchid plants along with lovely hand painted cherry blossom garden markers for the honoree families to remember their loved ones. The garden markers are inspired by the Spring event theme. In addition, the two beautiful, healthy, new Palm Trees, again flanking the entrance to Naples Bayside Academy, were planted as a memorial for this year's honorees. This dedication was made possible by the NIGC Beautification Committee. This year’s Arbor Day donation by NIGC to the San Bernardino Forest Penny Pines program, was made in memory of Garden Club member, Nancee Tinsley .
