Poinsettia Project of Heritage Garden Club
Martha, Dutton, Marcia, Pat, Jean and Diane decorated the Durham VA Chapel with Poinsettias
on Nov 30 just in time for the Army Band to play a concert on Dec 2nd. This is the third year
Heritage has done this project.
“As the days get shorter and fall fades into winter, the Heritage Garden Club has found a unique way to honor our Veterans. The slogan “We the People Celebrate those who fought for our freedoms and all we hold dear” is at the top of a list of over 100 individuals honored this holiday season. The Heritage Garden Club, under the leadership of Ms. Marcia Loudon, donated over 100 Poinsettias to the Durham VA Medical Center’s Chapel. The Heritage Garden Club procured, transported and arranged these beautiful poinsettias, and they have also pledged to water and tend to the plants several times a week throughout the holiday season. Each poinsettia, donated by friends and families of Veterans in our community, brings joy to our hospitalized Veterans. Please visit the Chapel and enjoy this wonderful tribute to Veterans.” From Rev. John Oliver and the VA Facebook page.
