Rehoboth Garden Club News

Posted

Happy Spring! In addition to the hearty sprouts pushing their way up toward the sun, this new season ushers in three of the most important annual events for the Rehoboth Garden Club.

First, we are proud to announce that we will once again be offering a second semester $1,000.00 scholarship. High school seniors or graduate students from Rehoboth and the surrounding communities who have achieved a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 on a 4.0 scale, and will be attending an accredited college may apply. Applicants must major in botany, horticulture, agriculture, agronomy, floriculture, forestry, natural resource management, the environmental sciences, or related fields. Candidates may obtain an application by writing to the Rehoboth Garden Club, 117 Carpenter Street, Rehoboth, Massachusetts, 02769 or by calling 508-252-6337. The deadline for application submissions will be June 30, 2017.

Second, the club's eighty-third annual meeting and luncheon will be held on Monday, April 3, 2017 at the Crestwood Country Club at 11:00 AM. Outgoing Corresponding Secretary Diane Wald will be honored for her many years of dedicated service to the club.

Third, mark the date of Saturday, May 13, 2017 on your calendars for the annual plant sale. As always, annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables, hanging plants and small shrubs will be available. This year will be extra special with the addition of Mother's Day gifts, raffles, and fun gifts for kids. This fundraiser benefits the club's scholarship, civic and educational programs.

The Rehoboth Garden Club always welcomes new members. For information please contact Dianne Burns at 508-336-9933 or dburns54@comcast.net.
