The Beaufort Garden Club was among several selected to enhance the landscaping at the National Cemetery in Beaufort. The club submitted its design for a new entrance for approval by the National Cemetery Administration in Washington, D.C., and with funds from the cemetery and the club, new shrubs were purchased for the curved garden. The grounds crew at the National Cemetery and members of the Garden Club completed the planting on October 11.
This project continues the 77 year long tradition of Civic Beautification by The Beaufort Garden Club. It was one of the garden clubs that replaced dozens of trees destroyed by Hurricane Gracie in 1959 and is the sponsor of the annual Garden-a-Day tours each June.
