As part of the National Garden Club’s “Plant it Pink” project, the Morning Glory Garden Club has launched a local effort to promote awareness and fight breast cancer.
With the help of OMI parks and grounds employees, Morning Glory members recently installed a bed of pink snapdragons in Hinesville’s Main Street Park.
The flowerbed, which was designed by Judy Mobley, is made of pink bricks arranged in the shape of the ribbon logo used by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Mobley is the chairwoman for the Morning Glory Garden Club and the National Garden Club’s Oleander District, which includes the Hinesville club and more than 80 others.
Mobley said she’s more than happy to implement the “Plant it Pink” project on a local level because she’s familiar with the devastating tolls breast cancer can take on families. She has several relatives who are battling the disease, including her mother-in-law and sister-in-law.
“The importance of this program and the need for everyone’s help cannot be over-emphasized,” Mobley said.
The club chairwoman said she hopes with enough public interest and support, a cure for breast cancer or a prevention method will be developed soon.
