The Nancy Weber Garden Club presented a check for $100 to the city of Farmington last Thursday afternoon in memory of longtime member Winnie Nelson.
Farmington Garden Council President Debbie Eck explained the reason for the donation.
“Winnie was a member of our garden club for many years and she passed away recently,” she said. “The club always memorializes our members that pass away by donating money to the city-since the city is a member of Tree City USA-to plant a tree in their memory.”
Nelson joined the club in 1949 and was club president in the years 1956, 1974 and 1989. She was also a life member of the Federated Garden Club of Missouri.
