Dear Editor,

The Gardens Retirement Community, would like to thank all those who participated in our 3rd annual "Garden of Trees," for 2011. As in the past, proceeds will be donated to our own Cherokee Hospice. We are delighted to say over $800.00 was raised this year!

Special thanks to those who decorated trees and wreaths, provided by the Gardens. This included businesses, organizations and private individuals from our great community.

Thanks to Cherokee Villa, Cherokee State Bank, KCHE and CRMC Hospice/Home Health. Thanks to the Cherokee Cavaliers, Laureate Gamma Eta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, Red Derby Dames, Alpha Delta Kappa, and the American Legion Auxiliary.

Thanks to these individuals, which includes our great staff at the Gardens. Page Cresap, Deb Morrow, Christina Reinert, Kim Kohler, Jana Happe, Bonnie Ducommun, the Leeds Family, Barb Cooper, Kathy Letts and Cindy Strahmann.

Finally, thank you to all that came out to place a bid, without you there would be no auction! The highest bid this year came from Velma Townsend for the Cherokee State Bank wreath, which brought $80.00!

Jana Happe, Director

Deb Morrow, Activities
