Edwardsville Garden Club Remembers Macie Crow
The Edwardsville Garden Club is very active in the surrounding communities. While preserving the natural beauty of Illinois the club members enhance that beauty by maintaining numerous gardens in the area. Some of those projects are the LeClaire Band Stand, SIUE Pharmacy Garden, Eden and Relais Bonne Eau gardens and the Macie Crow Memorial Garden. August brings added focus to the Macie Elizabeth Crow Memorial Garden. Macie may have spent a brief seven years on earth but she is not forgotten.
On Saturday, August 13, 2011 the Edwardsville Garden Club began their meeting as member, Alison Lamothe introduced member M. A. Smith and the family of Macie Crow. As you can tell from the photo, Ms. Smith, presented the family with her exquisitely, hand-carved memento for the Macie E. Crow Memorial Garden. The presentation was a timely remembrance as Macie would have been ten years old on August 10, 2011. Edwardsville Garden Club is honored to maintain all gardens from the largest projects to the smallest and dearest. Members, men and women alike, continue to astound one another with the hidden talents of their membership. Members take great pleasure in knowing that their love of gardening can become so beneficial to the environment and so many residents of the communities they serve.
