The Garden Club of Orange held its annual luncheon at Grassy Hill Country Club in early June. One of the highlights of the event was the installation of new President Linda Bradford. Linda’s theme for the coming year is “Stepping Stones to Blooming” educating members by increasing their knowledge of plant life and floral design.
Certificates of Appreciation were distributed to Treasurer Paula Harkins for her 16 years of service in that capacity, to Dot Zolla for her work as chair of the Garden Therapy program for 15 years and to Nancy Becque, a 50 year member of the club serving in many capacities including president.
Garden club members will continue working throughout the summer maintaining the Town Green and the new herb garden at the Stone Otis House.
