Cumming Garden Club has been involved with assisting in maintaining Poole’s Mill Memorial garden area, along with Forsyth County Master Gardeners and Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Dept. since 1993, when a grant was obtained from Shell Oil. That grant was to encourage better understanding of environmental and conservation concerns in the area. The partnership continues, with recent “sprucing up” by Cumming Garden Club members who are also FC Master Gardeners.

Following the November meeting, Cumming Garden Club members made table arrangements for The Oaks with a Christmas theme. Artificial flowers and foliage was used to fill Christmas decorated coffee mugs. These were placed on dining room tables the first week of December and remained
through the Christmas holiday.
More than 26 arrangements were designed for two separate dining rooms at the facility.
Two crystal bowls were decorated (and LED lights added)
for prominent placement in each dining room.
Table decorations for fall.
Chair: Tricia Wester
