Roe Manor Garden Club, out of love and respect, wish to dedicate
this yearbook to our oldest and most beloved member -- Mrs. Mary
Jane Swaney

Mrs. Swaney has been a member of Garden Club almost since its
inception and has always been and still is, one of our most
active members. Her gentle kindness, wit and lovely disposition
endears her to everyone she meets.

Knowing Mrs. Swaney is a privlege for which we are all very
thankful and this little tribute is but a small expression of the
love we all have for her.

Father of all gardens, we thank Thee that in the long ago Thou
didst begin the world in a garden.  We thank Thee for the morning
and the singing of the birds; we thank Thee for the quiet and
peace of eventide and the blessing of sleep which comes from the
night.  As we rise in the morning to work in our gardens, grant
that the toil of our bodies may bring tranquility to our minds;
encourage us to lend a helping hand to the needy, to speak words
of sympathy to hearts that mourn.  For the fight of Thy Son who
suffered in a garden we thank Thee, and in His name we make this
prayer.  -- Amen

Civic__ A continuation of our plan to beautify the island located
at 57th and Linden Street, by planting new flowers or shrubs
where needed, taking care of ones already planted and keep grass
cut or see that it is done.

Therapy__ To be handled by a committee, who will report to the
club at least four times a year what Institutions or Homes need
our help, and in what way we can help.

Therapy__ Garden therapy is the conservation of Human Life.  Its
purpose is to give opportunity for the expression of personality,
to form an outlet for energy, to divert attention from self and
illness, to let the orphans know some one cares.

Our Therapy project is to be handled by a committee, who will
report at least four times a year, as to who we can help, and in
what way.

Dig a hole and set a plant
   And firmly press the sod;
Water it and cherish it,
   And leave the rest to God.

Nature reveals its most precious
   secrets in a garden of flowers.
