The Garden Club of Spring Lake was founded in 1988. Its founder and first president was Rosemary Rizzi. Currently the club has 101 members and serves the greater Spring Lake community through member participation in a variety of civic projects (link). A number of the club’s projects have received an award from the Garden Club of New Jersey, including Adopt a Station, Conservation/Environment, Garden Therapy, Landscaping at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Random Acts of Beauty, Whistlestop Gardens, Wreaths Across America and Youth Gardening.
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month except for February, July and August at 12:00 p.m. in the Spring Lake Community House. Refreshments are served and we hear a speaker on various topics that enhance our knowledge of the environment, horticulture and floral design. Guests are welcome.
This is a club whose members give freely of their time and talents. Hence, so much is accomplished while we make and grow special friendships.
