Garden club holds tree planting ceremony

FAYETTEVILLE — Woodland Oaks Garden Club met on May Day along the White Oak Rail Trail at the Depot for a tree planting ceremony honoring Brenda Moore, West Virginia State Garden Club President. A pink dogwood tree was planted in her honor. Moore, an Oak Hill resident and a member of Woodland Oaks Garden Club, has been state garden club president since 2011 and is concluding her term.

At the conclusion of the tree planting ceremony, members went to  Darlene Newell’s home for a horticulture program. Each member and guest planted succulents in turtles to take home to enjoy.

It was announced that on Earth Day, 11 members helped clean the litter up along the White Oak Rail Trail. Woodland Oaks Garden Club won the West Virginia Garden Club Award for the White Oak Rail Trail project at the West Virginia Garden Club Convention in Morgantown in April. Also, there were two first place winners of the Smokey Bear contest that was held at New River Elementary. Awards will be given later in May to those students. Members will begin weeding and fertilizing flower and shrub beds, and various trees that have been planted.

Flower and shrub beds are located at the Oak Hill Library, at the entrance to the Oak Hill City Park, rock gardens near the Oak Hill Fire Department, and the Mary Sue Revels Memorial Garden.
