Polk’s Memory Garden was designed several years ago after Louise Gowens, a PMC associate, passed away from breast cancer. Since then, PMC has added a plaque in remembrance for every employee that has passed away.
The most recent loss was Ozzie Mitchell of Security.
This service project to preserve the garden was lead by Mr. Michael Ferguson’s Horticulture class at Cedartown High School.
Students Jolie Puckett, Kathryn Weddington and John Marangakis donated their time to freshen up the garden.
Polk Medical sends out a special thanks to these students, Mr. Ferguson and Cedartown High School for their hard work and efforts.
