New Albany Garden Club’s December meeting, themed “Celebrating Christmas,” was spent with residents at Dogwood Assisted Living. Garden club member and program leader, Rheta Ann West, who participates in regular garden therapy activities with the clients at New Haven, felt that local seniors would benefit from such an activity. “Social participation and garden therapy both have such positive outcomes of well-being for older people,” she said, “and we were honored to spend the afternoon here at Dogwood.”

Garden club members created a fresh greenery candle holder, visited, and enjoyed refreshments with residents.
