PIKE COUNTY - Members of the Milford Garden Club joined with new Habitat for Humanity homeowner, Luis, to establish several small gardens.

A variety of shrubs and perennials were donated and members enjoyed designing, as well as building, the gardens. Thanks was extended for sponsors who made donations, through the work of members Kathy and Jim Donoghue and Connie and Rick Nichols): Fair Acres Farms, Jeff’s Greenhouse, Laurel Grove Nursery, Luhr’s Hardware, Myers the Florist, as well as Milford Garden Club members who donated perennials from their gardens. The mission of the Milford Garden Club includes, not only beautification of Milford, but also entering into partnerships with other community organizations who foster civic pride.
