Garden club decorates McDowell House for tea event

Published 6:07 am Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Fresh boxwood wreaths are hanging in the windows of the McDowell House Museum thanks to the Garden Club of Danville. Members made the wreaths in preparation for the club’s 54th Holiday Open House and Green Tea at the historic home in early December. The Garden Club has been decorating the house and inviting the community to tea every December since 1964. Donations from the public have raised thousands of dollars over the years for the Salvation Army and Family Services of Boyle County. Shown with their finished wreaths are, front row from left, Linda Taylor, Jan Messamore, and Janis Scott. Back row, Ginny Eklund, Dede Turner, and Cathy Lally.
