Garden Club To Give Hospital Flowers
The Ann Arbor Garden club has started as a summer project, a ‘‘clearing house” to keep a supply of flowers in the rooms and lounges of the ninth floor of University hospital and to use to advantage any flowers or containers that the owners do not use. The first collection will be made tomorrow and they will be held each Wednesday through the summer.
Members of the club and other Ann Arbor gardeners who wish to share their flowers will take them to the ambulance entrance of the hospital, where an attendant will be stationed on Wednesday morning to take them, thus avoiding parking and waiting. Containers also are to be donated, if the giver has some not in use. Simple flower arrangements will be taken, also specimen blooms to be used in teaching the children in the department as well as for decoration.
Mrs. William F. Giefel of Barton Hills, chairman of the project, will be assisted tomorrow by Mrs. Frank E. Wood of Pauline Blvd. Specimen blooms or flowers from unusual shrubs or plants will have a special educational value, Mrs. Giefel suggests, if they are labeled with the name and some distinguishing feature.
