The Naugatuck Garden Club celebrated its 30th Anniversary in style on June 15 with Mayor N. Warren “Pete” Hess III on hand to offer his thanks for all the great work the club does. A club of approximately 50 members, The Naugatuck Garden Club’s objectives are to encourage interest and educate members in all phases of home gardening and promote better horticultural practices, civic beauty, educate in the conservation of natural resources, and to engage in charitable projects within the local community. They meet on the third Thursday of each month and welcome all garden enthusiasts for fun, refreshments, and an enlightening program. Among the projects the club manages are the garden in front of Town Hall, The Gazebo on the Green, The Welcome Sign Garden, the O’Donnell Memorial Garden, the Whittemore bridge boxes, the Great War Monument, and the Butterfly Garden behind the library. At their celebration, they honored four members who have been with the club since its founding.
Warmest congratulations to the Naugatuck Garden Club on their Anniversary and their many projects! Keep up the great work!
