A recent meeting of the Jefferson Parish Council of Garden Clubs featured a moment of remembrance for club members who died during the past year.

The meeting was held in Lafreniere Foundation Center and was presided over by President Elizabeth ‘Betty’ Gibbs, who recognized those members who have passed on since April 2013.

A yellow rose was presented to a family member of the deceased or accepted by a member of the garden club to which that deceased member belonged.

Gloria Ruiz read a short prayer, then sang “How Great Thou Art.”

Harold Huffman accepted a rose for all the service members who have died fighting for America, and a prayer was said for the safety of present service members. Huffman also was made an honorary member of JPCGC.
