Thomasville-  A Thomasville center that has helped the community celebrate many events is now celebrating one of its own. 

The Thomasville Garden Center turns 50 this year. To celebrate its birthday, the Thomasville Garden Clubs have set up an endowment fund to provide for the center's future.

"The building is just as pretty and as serviceable as it was 50 years ago so, we need to maintain it for the next 50 years.  Our main goal right now are to improve the kitchen and work on the grounds," said Ann McKinnon, Endowment Committee Chairwoman. 

To make a donation to the endowment fund you can contact the Community Foundation at (229) 228-5088.  Donations can also be mailed to The Community Foundation of South Georgia, Inc. P.O. Box 2654 Thomasville, GA 31799.  Checks should be made payable to The Thomasville Garden Center Charitable Fund.
