Glendale’s DAR Anasazi Chapter dedicates ‘Never Forget Garden’

Posted

Members of the Anasazi Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, with Glendale Arizona Historical Society members, dedicated a Never Forget Garden at Historic Manistee Ranch in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington, D.C.

James Cates, a member of the Barry Goldwater Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, provided a brief history of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, including the importance of white roses in the selection of the soldier who would become the Unknown Soldier.

The program ended with remarks by Mayor Jerry P. Weiers, whose initial donation to Anasazi Chapter was the catalyst for the creation of the Never Forget Garden at Historic Manistee Ranch, located at 52nd and Northern Avenues.

The Never Forget Garden consists of 21 beautiful Pascal White Hybrid Tea Roses. A special Never Forget Garden Marker also will be installed so that visitors will know the purpose of the garden and the veterans it is designed to honor.

Founded in 1973, the Glendale Arizona Historical Society is a visible force for historic preservation in Glendale. GAHS members have also demonstrated a special attachment to and love for some of the historic old buildings of the city of Glendale, especially Manistee Ranch and Sahuaro Ranch.

DAR was founded on Oct. 11, 1890, and members perform a variety of community service projects including planting trees and pollinator gardens; donating and delivering items to local homeless veterans; writing cards and sending packages to military troops deployed overseas; awarding medals to outstanding citizens and ROTC cadets; creating “Little Libraries” to promote literacy; awarding college scholarships; and encouraging the study of U.S. history and the Constitution.
