IN HONOR OF ANN BLADES

Ann Blades was a longtime supporter and board member of Pine Jog. She served on the Pine Jog Advisory Board for almost twenty years. Her active participation and enthusiasm have insured that the long-standing partnership between the Garden Club of Palm Beach and Pine Jog remains vibrant.

Ann had a vision of a place that could build community; a place where parents could connect and children could explore; a place where children could take grand adventures in the imaginary worlds that they create, a place where the senses are tickled by the colors of the flowers and dreams can take flight with the butterflies. 

The Pine Jog playscape is being built in her honor.
