On May 18th, an absolutely beautiful island morning, PIB Garden Club planted 42 hanging baskets for the lamp posts in DeRivera Park. Another team of volunteers then hung the baskets by lift the next day. Thank you to all of our wonderful members for continuing to make this a successful event! And, an especially big thank you to Mike McCabe for the use of his lift and continued support of the Garden Club.
