Town and Country Gardeners: Donated $600 from their "tree fund" to the WHS to replace our two lost trees. They donated two Wildfire Black Gum Trees and S.A Moreland Landscaping installed the trees.
Peoria Garden Club: President Leri Slonneger wrote  the Peoria Garden Club requesting a grant to finish our landscaping project. The Peoria Garden Club donated $400 and additional money from event fundraisers including the Kitchen Tour and May Day baskets fundraisers. An additional $500 was donated by the Charles Slonneger Family and $100 from Pam Martin.
