|Local garden clubs recently brought holiday cheer to the Regional Medical Center by decorating Christmas trees in lobby areas and other public areas throughout the hospital.
For the past 30 years, local garden clubs have dedicated their time, creativity and resources in decorating Christmas trees
for the hospital, a tradition that began after construction of the new hospital was completed in 1981. Each garden club
contributes months of hard work in planning for their decorations.
Ten garden clubs participated in the holiday decorating at RMC this year. The following is a list of participating garden clubs
and the respective locations of their trees: Verdant Garden Club-Orangeburg, Cafeteria; Dogwood Club-St. Matthews,
