The women of the Centerport Garden Club plant, weed, deadhead and maintain the Rose Garden at the Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport New York. Each week throughout the growing season member volunteers show up every Monday morning at 9AM to keep these gardens in prime condition for the many visitors who visit the grounds.
At the Centerport Garden Club’s March 2016 meeting held at the Harborfields Library we introduced the new incoming executive board members and welcomed 4 new members to our club.
Incoming Executive Board: Kris Strandfeldt: Recording Secretary, Mary Ahern: Communications, Sally Lauve & Anne Wesp: 1st VP, Jan Kahn: President, Pat Brooks: Treasurer.
Welcome to our newest CGC members: Lyn Moodie, Silke Nitsch, Barbara Browne & Donna Rusinski.
There was also an excellent lecture given by Michael Tessitore speaking on “Dealing with the increasing deer population on Long Island.”
Our gorgeous floral arrangement was by our member Gail Berti.
The women of the Centerport Garden Club maintain and tenderly care for the Rose Garden at the Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport NY.
Each week throughout the growing season a rotating group of volunteers assemble at the garden to weed, deadhead, mulch, rake, dig, plant, edge trim and sweep this historic garden. Club members have been tending this garden for decades. Community beautification is one of the missions of the Centerport Garden Club.
Thanks to our CGC member Monica Tehomilic for her excellent photography.
