Garden club helped cultivate city neighborhoods
Alimay Thompson Kendrick sits in her dining room and recalls the first meeting of a neighborhood club she joined in 1959. It was a garden club, composed of both men and women, all African-American, formed to represent the neighborhoods of Forest Park, Windsor Hills and Ashburton. It was named For-Win-Ash and its aim was to keep these communities green, clean and beautiful.
