A new commemorative garden arrives at the Salvation Army Renaissance Village

0

For two years, the Salvation Army of Omaha’s Female Auxiliaries has been working on the creation of a commemorative garden on its Renaissance Village campus. Now they are seeing the fruits of their labor become a reality. On Monday, members unveiled a memorial garden that will be enjoyed by families living at Heritage Place off 38th and Cuming. A playground already exists there, but soon families will have a place to sit and watch the children play. The Female Auxiliary raises funds for services not covered by the Salvation Army budget. Former President Karen Jacobi said that after two years it is nice to see the project come to fruition. “We collected donations and finally came up with a cohesive plan to have a patio with commemorative pavers,” she said. Jacobi said there will also be herbs and perennials planted as well as space for gardening. The patio should be ready by the end of July.
