Five flags wave proudly near the 16th green at Harbor Hills’ Military Memorial. Each flag represents a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. Surrounded by the serenity of the memorial, we are inspired to reflect on the achievements and sacrifices of our military the world over. Memorial Day, like everything else this year, is different in the Age of the Coronavirus. But with others or apart, we remain grateful for the sacrifices of our military and military families.

To honor our veterans, the Harbor Hills Garden & Women’s Club sells bricks engraved with your veteran’s name. The bricks surround our memorial forming a unique patchwork of veterans’ names and memories. Shirle Mabie, Garden & Women’s Club President, heads up the effort. She explains that funds from the brick sales help pay for the costs of maintenance and upgrades to Veteran’s Park. To purchase an engraved brick, email Shirle at shirlemabie@gmail.com.

Mark your calendar! It’s not too early for the Harbor Hills Garden and Women’s Club to plan for the next season. The pandemic caused the cancellation of the club’s events last year. If all is safe, the 2021-2022 season will start this October 2021 through May 2022. Fees that were paid for the 2020-2021 season will be honored for the upcoming 2021-2022 season. Shirle guarantees members will be delighted by the variety of entertaining programs presented each month. “We are looking forward to starting the luncheon and programs in October and seeing everyone’s smiling faces.”

Membership is open to all Harbor Hills Country Club members. Email Frankie Smith, Communications Director at frasmith1@gmail.com for more information.
