Henderson Garden Opens

Posted on 30th January 2014 at 17:07

A bequest to Community Home Health and Hospice has finally come to pass, as the E. Kenneth Henderson Memorial Garden opens to the public. Officials with Community say that Henderson left the bequest as a gift to benefit other families, so they have created a place for families to visit, enjoy nature and to reminisce about treasured memories. Along with the bequest from Henderson, others have stepped up to contribute; Jim Clary with Bud Clary Chevrolet donated land that borders the car lot, Eric Pucci of Newrock Homes helped contribute materials used in the entrance, bridges and fencing, Lowe’s donated material and labor, Nancy Chennault helped save existing trees that were on the site, and HD Fowler Company donated two water features. U. S. Bank employees also stepped up with a $1,500 grant from bank employees. Community CEO Greg Pang says that this has become a “beloved project” for all involved, and he says that they honored by the outpouring of support. The E. Kenneth Henderson Memorial Garden was also honored by the Lower Columbia Contractors Association, receiving the Community Project Construction Excellence Award and the People’s Choice Award at the LCCA’s recent annual banquet. The Ken Henderson Memorial Garden is open to the public, from 8 to 5 Monday through Friday.
