PEPPERELL – If you love flowers and working in your yard, you may want to consider joining the Pepperell Garden Club or attending an informative meeting or two. The Pepperell Garden Club is open to residents from all towns.

The Pepperell Garden Club recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. Meetings along with an instructive program are held on the second Wednesday of the month from September through June. It meets at 6:45 P.M. at the Pepperell Senior Center on Route 111. The Sept. 12 program will be the annual Plant Swap. Bring a labeled perennial, or houseplant and swap it for another. Members will discuss some of the unusual plants and how to care for them. The program will be followed by the business meeting and as always, refreshments will be served.

Many members knew little about gardening when they joined but have learned great deal. There are many friendly members of all ages and from many towns. Delicious refreshments are always served. The annual dues are $20 for a year of great informative programs and events. Or come and pay a $5 ($2 for seniors) guest fee for the program. The Pepperell Garden Club is an active organization. Some of the members take care of the flowers at the rotary, Senior Center, VFW, and at Pepperell Town Hall.

A few of the members worked on Main Street beautification. Have you noticed the beautiful landscaping near the VFW and the holiday wreaths around town? Many members attend summer garden safaris to enjoy the beauty of local gardens. Best of all the Pepperell Garden Club has its well known annual plant sale at the Senior Center in May. Members are encouraged to attend programs and events. The more they do, the more fun they have. That’s what makes it a great organization. For information, check out
