Wednesday, members of the Morning Glory Garden Club gathered at Ciscos Dog Park in Bryant Commons to celebrate Arbor Day.
This year, the club planted two camellia bushes in memory of the late Amanda Cox. She and her family loved camellias and grew many varieties.
Cox also loved animals and befriended the Liberty Humane Shelter in her will.
The bushes were planted with the help of three workers from the city’s public works contractor ESG.
The Georgia General Assembly designated the third Friday in February as Arbor Day in the state first in 1941. The Garden Club makes a planting in the city each year near that date.
Nationally, Arbor Day is the last Friday in April.
