On Tuesday, March 27th at 11:00 a.m. there was a dedication ceremony of the sculpture which now stands on the Ajijic malecon. Designed and executed by member Estela Hidalgo, this beautiful legacy of the Lakeside Garden Guild is the community project of our group for 2017/2018 and will enhance the malecon area for years to come. Many thanks to Estela for this beautiful monument in memory of Juanita Reed. We appreciate Gayle McGraw and Bonnie Newman for planning and executing this event.

The Lakeside Garden Guild began in September of 1968 by women who were interested in the love of gardening and floral decoration. Over the years the interest grew to include a total of 40 women who put their skills together in a social network and has expanded to several community projects that have helped the local people as well as beautifying the Ajijic village, Gran Plaza and streets.
