The Rehoboth Garden Club will be celebrating its 90th anniversary at our Annual Meeting on April 16, 2024. It will be held at Crossroads Restaurant & Pub in Warren, RI.

Our 2024 Arbor Day tree planting will take place Saturday April 27th at noon at Francis Farm. The tree will be dedicated to the memory of Ali Solas, daughter of George and Lissa Solas. It will be planted near the gazebo and fountain. The community is invited to attend the ceremony.

Garden club members will be reading to children at the Seekonk Library on April 22nd and at the Blanding Library on April 23rd to celebrate Reading Month. Nature and environmental awareness are the topics of the books, which will be donated to the libraries.

They must be majoring in agriculture, horticulture, floraculture, or a related environmental science. The application deadline is April 15, 2024.
