Forest Hills Garden Club Celebrates with Annual Christmas Auction

Members of the Forest Hills Garden Club gather to bid on lots of treasures.

The Forest Hills Garden Club of Durham held its highly spirited annual Christmas Auction Dec. 7 and raised monies for a number of philanthropy projects slated for 2017. In recent years the club has donated mulch and manpower for its annual Briggs Ave. Community Garden project in the spring; is a leader in poinsettia purchase for the Poinsettia Project for Veterans at the Durham VA Medical Center; and presents various gifts to Durham schools and organizations throughout the year. The FHGC auction was hosted by Treasurer Moe Berry and Past President Mindy Solie served as auctioneer.  Photos by Mary Clayton, FHGC member.
