If all goes well, next summer, rows of dogwoods will be in full bloom on Selma’s new walking track at Bloch Park, in memory of some of Selma’s residents.

The plan, kicked off Tuesday at the track, has already started with Cahaba Hospice workers contributing to the cause with two trees.

Ware died in November 2004. Her husband Richard Ware was on hand for the ceremony, held partly in honor of his wife and the program she helped found.

Sexton said the city’s beautification project would accept similar donations for anyone who wants a loved one remembered in the park.

Cahaba Hospice has been a part of Selma for more than eight years. It was founded by Ware in 1996. Sexton said Cahaba Hospice was a great program for Selma and its citizens.

Cahaba Hospice is an organization that gives care and support to terminally ill patients and their families. Cahaba Hospice serves people affected by life-limiting illness and loss by providing comprehensive, compassionate care, while respecting each person’s needs and wishes.

Anyone wishing to make a donation in memory of a loved one can contact Cahaba Hospice at 418-0566 or Sexton at 874-2111.
