Ferriday Garden Club

THE FERRIDAY GARDEN CLUB gave a big salute to all veterans by placing 200 small American flags at the base of the Blue Star Memorial Marker, located at the Bayou Memorial Park on Hwy 84 in Ferriday. The Blue Star Memorial Program is sponsored by the National Garden Club, Inc. The park was established in 2006 to honor community veterans who have served, are serving, or will serve in any branch of the armed services. Behind the monument are 55 flags that were dedicated to honor or in memory of loved ones who have served their country. Also behind the monument are the historical flags that have flown over Louisiana.

The Ferriday Garden Club appreciates  the community support of garden club programs and projects and is proud to salute all who have served in defense of our nation.
