The Amaryllis Garden Club decorates the Amilea Porter Center at Palisades Park every other year. Members decorated the inside of the center using a live tree and decorations made from natural items. The Christmas tree (at left) features handmade pine cone ornaments, wood slice ornaments, and small gift boxes made from Christmas cards. The fireplace mantle (below) is also decorated as are the windows (bottom) and space above the cabinets.
Members of the club are: Fran Frengel, Donna Blackwell, Shelia Bicknell, Kathy Durrett, Margaret Galloway, Velma Harvey, Sara Holloway, Linda Millwood, Nancy Murray, Andi Page, and Vickie Rutledge.
The center is available for parties, meetings, and reunions during the holiday season. Contact the park at 205-274-0017 for reservations.
