Garden club to present awards

— The Carillon Garden Club is searching for businesses and homes in both Ticonderoga and Hague to honor because of curb appeal of their outstanding gardens and/or plantings.

“Our Community Enhancement Awards will recognize the efforts of local gardeners who beautify our communities,”

said Joyce Cooper, first vice president of the club.

Certificates recognizing the curb appeal of floral and vegetable gardens, spots of color in planters or window boxes and landscaping will be awarded.

Nominations by garden club members, friends and neighbors of residents, passers-by and customers of businesses will all be considered. Judging of summer plantings will take place during August with certificates being distributed in August and September.

“As you travel throughout Ticonderoga and Hague and see from the curb an outstanding garden, window box, planter or a special front landscape that deserves recognition please call Joyce at 585-2640, Betty at 585-7247 or Vivian at 543-6801 or any member of the Carillon Garden Club,” Cooper said.

The objectives of the Carillon Garden Club are to promote interest in gardening; to aid in the protection and conservation of natural resources; to protect civic beauty; and to study and advance the fine arts of gardening, landscape design, floral design and horticulture. New members are always welcome. The club meets each month on the third Thursday.

More information about the club may be obtained by calling Joyce at 585-2640, Betty at 585-7247 or Vivian at 543-6801.
