In May of 2010, the Fairfield Memorial Hospital Foundation was established to support Fairfield Memorial Hospital in its mission to meet the healthcare needs of the community. The Foundation is a qualified charitable 501(c)3 entity, which allows your donation to be eligible as a tax deductible gift. Fairfield Memorial Hospital invests in the Foundation by providing for operating expenses, which allows your entire contribution to support hospital needs. Our separate board of directors provides oversight for the foundation’s work, ensuring stewardship of its resources. Your gift to the foundation is an investment in the health of our community and an investment for life.

The Victorian Language of Flowers
This very visual presentation on “The Victorian Language of Flowers” describes the way flowers were used for intricate and sometimes clandestine communications during the past. These codes were at their height during the Victorian era. This was a time when feelings were not so freely expressed. Flowers had their own meanings and people conveyed all kinds of messages and the meanings were complex and varied. Many carried around little hand books to decipher the code of the bouquet they were sending and receiving. However, floral codes go back into antiquity, featuring in myths and folklore. In ancient times flowers were greatly prized for their healing and protective powers. Learn how you can unravel this code and enjoy flowers even more when you understand their depth of meaning.
The daughter and granddaughter of farmers, Sonya White’s childhood in Northeast England literally revolved around planting, harvesting and a deep, practical appreciation for Earth’s bounties. She resigned from a 30 year career in Health Care and Clinical Development when she married her American husband in 2003 and moved to South Carolina in 2004. She now has the opportunity to indulge her passion for English gardening and the ancient meanings of plants and flowers.
As a 501(c) 3 tax exempt organization, donations to the foundation may be tax deductible. Donations may be sent to FMH Foundation, PO Box 1156, Winnsboro, S.C. 29180.

Have tea and scones with the Charleston Silver Lady
If you appreciate the history of fine silver of the early 1900s, you will want to make a reservation for the March 10 benefit presentation by the Charleston Silver Lady, Dawn Corley, at Laura's Tea Room in Ridgeway, SC.
The special presentation will include 100 gorgeous pieces from Corley's extensive collection, including the personal silver from John C. Calhoun. A delicious assortment of scones and hot teas will be served.
A descendant of one of Charleston's colonial silversmiths, Corley has spent a lifetime collecting and gathering silver from South Carolina. Her particular focus is in 18th and 19th century Charleston silver.
A sought-after lecturer, Corley has given presentations to U. S. presidents, the Pentagon, at the Family Circle Cup, and hundreds of other groups. She has been featured in such magazines as Southern Lady, National Geographic, Veranda, and South Carolina Home and Garden. She has also been featured on subjects related to her antiques on local and national television, including HGTV's "If Walls Could Talk."
Corley's collection contains more than 5,000 historic objects linked to a low country family or plantation. A portion of her collection has been featured in an exhibition at the South Carolina State Museum. Due to popularity, the exhibit was extended twice.
A former fellow with the Charleston Antiques School and an expert in fine jewelry, Corley appraised the jewelry found in the H.L. Hunley, a Civil War submarine, after it was raised from the Charleston harbor. Her findings were published in Blue Light Magazine. The presentation to benefit the hospital foundation is March 10, 2013, from 3-4 p.m. at Laura's Tea Room in Ridgeway, S.C. Preregistration is recommended due to limited seating.
