12/10/2011 Prayer Tree
For the Christmas season, the Rivercities Garden Club selected a project to provide a Christmas which would also serve as a prayer tree. Family and friends of residents of Grace home have been provided a tree on which they can fasten their prayers, hopes, and thanksgiving.
Thanks to your Rivercities Garden Club for the precious gift of a prayer tree at Grace Home. It's such a perfect idea for our families and friends that visit. It looks just beautiful in our small gazebo and bring God's light near.

The club joined together to replace the planters at Grace Home. Both the patients' families and the nursing home were very appreciative that we left leaving the home much more attractive.

Grace Home is the residence for hospice patients and is sponsored by the St. Mary's Schumpert Medical Center. It serves as a place where those in the end stages are their life can reside and be kept as comfortable as possible for whatever time hey have left on this earth.
The Rivercities garden club has taken as a project, an arbor where those who are able can go out and sit in the comfort and shade of living plants.

Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle...a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl.
