Weston Garden Club Wreathing Weston in Holiday Glory
The Weston Garden Club members continue their tradition of greening in the holidays throughout Weston’s Town Center. Decorations include sixty-eight (68!!) wreaths on windows and doors of the Town Hall, the police and fire stations, the DPW building, the Art and Innovation Center, the Josiah Smith Tavern, Brook School, as well as white pine swag for the Watering Trough.
The decorating tradition goes back at least fifty years. Pre-Covid, the group collected greens by pruning local evergreens and gathering for a festive event when the Weston Garden Club members have made all the wreaths by hand. The club is delighted to continue the tradition and looks forward to a time when it can resume the social aspect of constructing the wreaths together.
“During these uncertain times, we hope the festive wreaths foster hope, peace and joy among all citizens and passers-by,” says club president, Molly Varnau. “Happy Holidays, Weston!”
Happy Holidays to you, Weston Garden Club, and thank you for all you do.
