Every year during the first week of June, the Wellington Garden Club joins with garden clubs across the country to celebrate National Garden Week, a project of the National Garden Clubs Inc.
On Monday, June 4, Wellington Garden Club members began National Garden Week by creating floral arrangements that were distributed to Wellington’s municipal offices, library, fire stations and the Mall at Wellington Green. Club members created wonderful arrangements and distributed them to the recipients. The club also received a proclamation from the Wellington Village Council and Mayor Anne Gerwig declaring the week of June 4-10 as National Garden Week.
“We are so grateful for the support our club receives from the Village of Wellington. National Garden Week is a wonderful opportunity for us to demonstrate our appreciation with floral gifts,” Wellington Garden Club President Carol Ralph said.
National Garden Week Chair Twig Morris added, “We are also grateful to Rachelle Crain, marketing manager at the Mall at Wellington Green, for providing the meeting room we used to create the arrangements.”
