Civic Development - Planters

Beginning with the Club's Spring Design Contest, this year's planters are stunning. The contest was a huge success garnering a total of 150 votes from citizens of Watertown and neighboring areas. All seven entries were unique and showed astounding talent. The winner, with 46 percent of the vote, was showcased at the Watertown Town Hall (Municipal Center). It was entitled, "Whimsical Willow."

Summer planters were also spectacular. They were all lovingly tendered during the hottest July on record in Connecticut, so were still beautiful in late September. Now we can enjoy - until frost - the Club's Autumn designs.

General Meetings in 2021

The long awaited resumption of in-person general meetings began with the June meeting, which was held outside at Veteran's Memorial Park's Gazebo. Tired of the Zoom venue, it was well attended and a much appreciated change.

The July Garden Luncheon was attended by 25 current, new and past members. It was held at the Hedberg residence; and, although not warm and sunny, everyone enjoyed each other's company, stayed mostly dry and loved the catered food from Labonnes in Watertown and Special Occasion Catering owned by Chef Linda O'Brien. Welcome new members Phyllis Bristol of Bethlehem and Jennifer Nelson of Oakville to the Club. Congratulations to Jessica Stango, the Club's 2021 Scholarship winner.

Civic Development - Gardens

The spring flowers in the Oakville Post Office garden are awesome. The garden was expanded in 2021 with new plants and bulbs - which can be enjoyed next spring.
