GARDENING - Rip Weaver and Deb Elliot with Aldridge Gardens discussed the Veterans Memorial Arbor project that will soon span the 125-foot dam on the lake at Aldridge Gardens. The structure will include a ceremonial area overlooking the water and will feature all of the service branch flags, as well as the U.S. flag. The arbor will be a metal structure that incorporates a design from the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. It will be fabricated by Robinson Iron, the company who refurbished the Vulcan statue above the city of Birmingham.

The public is invited to become an important part of this project by making donations towards its construction. A $2,500 donation will purchase a flag pole, a bench, or an arbor column, which will include a bronze plaque honoring an individual veteran or group of veterans the donor wishes to remember. This can include those who have served our country and those who are currently serving now. Of course, donations of any amount are also greatly appreciated and will be used to fund the construction of the arbor. A groundbreaking is scheduled for Monday, November 9th, at 10 a.m.  Hoover Mayor Gary Ivey will be on hand to take part in the ceremony and a small reception will be held immediately thereafter. Once the columns and arches have been delivered, the city of Hoover will assist in creating a concrete foundation for the structure
