The Milton Garden Club celebrated its Silver anniversary with a celebration and addition of a new garden. On Sunday, October 22, 2023, the club had a reception at the Milton Fire Hall from 2:00-4:00 PM. Kathryn Greig, Chairperson of the Anniversary committee, gave a brief history of the club. There were also remarks by Mayor John Collier and President Gillian Benson. Mums were presented to Leah Betts for her support of the club, to Barbara Fleetwood (Charlie Fleetwood’s widow for Charlie’s commitment to the club) and to Elaine Carbone for being the longest tenured member.
25th Anniversary Garden
In honor of the 25th year, a new garden was added next to the Clock garden (in the new parking lot). The design includes a brick paver walkway with four sections for flower planting. The first planting was 78 mums which when removed will be replaced with hundreds of tulip bulbs. For the spring/summer, annuals will be planted.
