On May 7, members of the Bermuda Run Garden Club met at the Dragonfly House in Mocksville to plant an herb and flower garden for the benefit of the children who spend time at this facility.

Dragonfly House Children Advocacy Center began in October 2010 and has served 2,400 children. This past January, Dragonfly House moved into its new facility. This 6,000 square-foot house offers the children of Davie and surrounding counties, who are victims of crimes and abuse, a safe and friendly environment with trained and compassionate professional counselors.

The mission is: “To reduce the devastating long-term effects that all forms of child abuse has on children, their families and society through immediate, coordinated, child focused services, education and advocacy.”

The garden club team arrived with flats of herbs, annuals and perennials along with pots, potting soil and several brightly colored watering buckets, and even a unique dragonfly ornament. Members planted the herbs and flowers in pots around the home.

Members expressed their appreciation for the work that Dragonfly House Executive Director Brandi Reagan, Therapist Tashia Rice, the staff and volunteers do in support of the children.  Each year the club provides support for local facilities whose charter is to aid the residents of Davie County.

Myers Greenhouse donated flowers for this project.

Club members working on the project: were chair, Lynn Marcellino; co-chair, Cathy Zeitvogel; and club president, resident Bonnie Rockaway; along with P.J. Guerra, Betty Sheek, Diana Sykes, Pat Wagner and Alice Bostrom.
