Annual Garden of Life Event Scheduled for May in Spencer Hospital Grand Avenue Park

posted on Monday, April 22, 2024 in Foundation

Signs of spring are in the air and soon will include growing flowers and other plants. One of the favorite activities of the Spencer Hospital Regional Healthcare Foundation is the annual Garden of Life campaign. Gifts given in memory of loved ones or in honor of special individuals are represented by blooming plants in Spencer Hospital's Grand Avenue Park. A special planting ceremony will be held in late May.

"The flowers last year were beautiful! It was so special to see some new faces, as well as some who have been coming for several years to plant flowers together. We look forward to the 2024 planting," commented Sara Taylor, Executive Director of the Spencer Regional Healthcare Foundation.
