Stock­ing up on Christ­mas joy

The Covington News - - Local news - By Tisa Smart Wash­ing­ton

The Ju­nior Gar­den Club at Sharp Learn­ing Cen­ter is spread­ing a lit­tle Christ­mas cheer this year. The group dec­o­rated 69 mini stock­ings for men­tal health pa­tients at Ge­or­gia Re­gional Hospi­tal in De­catur.

“This small group of girls made a lot of stock­ings, and I think they did a great job,” said Yvette Zie­lenske, who heads the group.

The Jr. Gar­den Club is a part of the Sat­suki Gar­den Club. Betty Bel­lairs, gar­den ther­apy chair for Sat­suki, said gar­den clubs across the state par­tic­i­pate in this stock­ing project ev­ery year.

“We usu­ally buy the stock­ings, but they (ju­nior club mem­bers) vol­un­teered to make them this year and they did a won­der­ful job,” said Bel­lairs.

Ju­nior Gar­den Club mem­bers spent two months dec­o­rat­ing the stock­ings.
