The end of the season for the Garden Club will be marked by the take down of flower baskets in DeRivera Park. Please join us at 9 am Thursday, October 5 as we gather for this final chore. Volunteers will be treated to a free breakfast as a thank you.
The Garden Club is planning for one more garden this year in DeRivera Park, at the corner of Bayview and Hartford. This garden is designed to welcome visitors as they enter the park from the Jet Express Dock. It will also feature plants surrounding the Battle of Lake Erie Plaque in order to highlight this important historical marker. The Village will fund part of the new garden and the Garden Club has earmarked $5,000 for this project. Jody Frimel, Barb Hunter, and Susan Hildebrandt are working with Todd Giesen of All Seasons Landscaping to fine tune the design. The garden will be planted this fall so we can all enjoy it next summer.
As the season ends, the Garden Club Board want to extend a very sincere thank you to all volunteers who helped with the watering, beach clean ups, garden maintenance, planting and takedown of baskets this year. Thank you also to Chan Stevens for his continued generosity in supplying the golf cart for our watering needs. It has been a great summer and we look forward now to 2018 for more garden fun and comradery. Enjoy this beautiful fall!
