2022 Arbor Day Memorial & Tree Planting

We held our annual Club Arbor Day Memorial Tree Planting Ceremony on May 13th along the St. Joe Walkway in Linear Park off Colbert Lane.

The Garden Club at Palm Coast held its annual Arbor Day Memorial Tree Planting Ceremony on May 13th at St. Joe Walkway at Linear Park in Palm Coast. The four members who were honored are Angela Ricci (2019), Shirley Stubbendick (2020), Joseph Fontaine, and Jane Culpepper (2021).

Assisted by the City of Palm Coast, a Japanese blueberry tree and a bottlebrush tree were planted along with an engraved bronze plaque with the names of those remembered. The ceremony was started by our past president Robert Tabit who led the Pledge of Allegiance and included speeches by Denise Garcia, our new Club President, and Denise Bevan, the Palm Coast City Manager. Pastor Jack Pladdys for the Palm Coast Bible Church gave the Invocation.

Family members of those being remembered in attendance were:

In Remembrance of Angela Ricci – Alfred Ricci (husband), Nina Ricci (daughter)

In Remembrance of Jane Culpepper – Mrs. Suzanne Wheeler (neice)

The garden can be enjoyed at St. Joe Walkway at Linear Park, 31 Greenway Court, Palm Coast (off Colbert Lane).
