Phyllis Dix, Westwood Middle School Principal-Chad Fletcher, Mary Trice and Carolyn Norfleet-the ladies are part of the Dig N Dream Garden Club in Manchester.

The Dig n Dream Garden Club’s annual gift to this community, The Trees of Christmas, is on display now at the Ada Wright Center in Fred Deadman park. The Club has presented Forty Years of the Trees of Christmas; and they celebrate that tremendous feat with forty trees displayed this year. The event truly is a gift, as there is no charge or fee-admission is free to all.
Marking the forty-year milestone with a special letter of appreciation, Westwood Middle School Principal Chad Fletcher, presented the letter to the Dig n Dream Garden Club, paraphrased here:
“Undoubtedly, this endeavor has required many hours of thankless service to turn ideas into reality. Sweat, love and tears water the Trees of Christmas and yet, when the event begins, it brings joy and wonder to both children and parents; grandkids and grandparents. For many, including students in the Manchester City School, this event is anticipated and enjoyed. It brings the spirit of Christmas alive. Thank you for setting such a high, worthy example for the children and the citizens of Manchester”.
Longtime members of the club, Phyllis Dix, Carolyn Norfleet and Mary Trice accepted the letter. Phyllis Dix said, “We learn, we dig and we dream-that we will make beautiful things.”
