The Perry Garden Club is hosting a Special Dedication of a bench for former garden club member, Betty Colby on Sunday, July 17 at 2 p.m. at the McQueen House in Perry (located on the corner of First and Madison streets). Betty was a member of the garden club for many years and due to her diligent work with the club, the club honored her with a lifetime membership years ago. “She was always active and busy with the club and had a great love for flowers. She hosted garden tours at her home, served on the committee to establish the Blue Star Memorial at the 105 rest area in honor of military veterans, served as past president, and was always present to work on projects,” commented Club Secretary Linda McDaniels.

The club would like to thank the family and anyone who donated toward a beautiful bench in memory of Betty. In the fall, the club will also be planting a tree in Betty’s memory to always remember her. “She was a great friend to all of us and we miss her very much,” added McDaniels.
