Forty Years and Forty Trees!
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.”
