The Garden Club of Orange spent the morning of November 19 decorating over a dozen wreaths to adorn the doors for the town buildings. Nancy Beque purchased fresh wreaths from a local Orange farm.
Members brought clippings of greens such as pine, juniper, boxwood and holly berries from their yards to embellish the wreaths. Beautiful red bows were then added. The holiday wreaths give a festive look to the doors and were ready for the Tree Lighting Ceremony and on December 1.
On Friday, November 22, the club also decorated the Case Memorial Library rotunda for the holiday season. Under the direction of Lana Ho, members have spent the last few meetings decorating new evergreen roping, swags and wreaths that adorn the railings around the rotunda. Lana designed the swags and roping and many of the club members implemented her design. It has been a busy month for the Garden Club to help beautify the town for the holidays.
