Hernando Garden Club members donate to state hospital

Hernando Civic Garden Club members (pictured from left) Arlie Walters, Debby Rutledge, and Mary Joyce Sandridge were recently shown collecting gifts for the Mississippi State Hospital at Whitfield. 

Instead of bringing the items to the December meeting of the club, which was canceled, members instead dropped off the presents at a designated parking lot to be packaged and mailed.  

The club’s efforts to provide Christmas cheer for hospital patients has been ongoing since 1975. 

Hernando Civic Garden Club is a member of the National Garden Clubs Inc. and the Garden Clubs of Mississippi Inc.
