The Glasgow Garden Club has seen their hard word and dedication come to reality this week for the community.  The club has a long tradition of quietly helping beautify the Beulah C. Nunn Park and is always looking for ways to make it more appealing to visitors.

“The cities Department of Public Works does an amazing job at keeping this park maintained, and it is just a wonderful place to have as a home to our veterans,” said Club President Glenda Eaton.

The park on the square in downtown Glasgow is home to the DAV Veterans Wall.  Eaton thanked the DAV members present for allowing the Garden Club to coordinate the plan to place the Blue Star Marker with the Veterans Wall.

“Our club voted to do this project, and then we had to get it approved through the State chairman of the Blue Star Marker, the State President of Garden Club of KY, and the National Chairman of *Blue Star Marker,” Eaton said. “All were very supportive of the project, as was Mayor Harold MD Armstrong and Darrell Pickett.”

Pickett is the County Chairman for the Veterans Association.

Armstrong and Council member Sheri Eubanks was on hand to represent the city.

Glasgow’s Garden Club is a member of the Cardinal Councils of Garden Clubs, Dogwood District of Ky., the Garden Club of Ky. INC., South Atlantic Region Garden Clubs INC., and the National Garden Clubs, INC.

The local club plans on having another dedication in the spring when weather is nicer and hopefully the COVID-19 issue has passed.  The goal will be to have the area nicely landscaped by then as well.
