Garden club assists nursing home

TICONDEROGA - Members of the Carillon Garden Club of Ticonderoga spent a day of gardening at the Inter-Lakes Health nursing home recently.

On a bright and sunny day some of the residents helped garden club members plant window boxes that will be enjoyed on the terraces this summer. The boxes were filled with geraniums, dusty miller, petunias and begonias.

Club Vice President Joyce Cooper organized this annual project.

Other areas around town will also be enhanced by the planting of colorful annuals. Entranceway gardens in Ticonderoga and Hague are also maintained by club members.

Two of the club objectives are to promote interest in gardening and to protect civic beauty. Each year, through the sale of holiday wreaths, the club members raise funds to enable the purchase of plants and materials to beautify the communities of Hague and Ticonderoga.

The Carillon Garden Club meets regularly from March through December and has 45 members. The club is associated with the National Garden Clubs, Inc., Central Atlantic Region and The Federated Garden Clubs of N.Y. State, Inc., District IV.

New members are welcome. Call President, Betty Rettig at 585-7247 for more information.
