The Christmas holiday arrived Monday, Nov. 5 at the Stockbridge Township Square when members of the Stockbridge Area Garden Club gathered to decorate the gazebo and Township Hall.
In keeping with their traditional generosity, Rick and Molly Howlett of the Howlett Tree Farm donated a stately Norway spruce and swags for the Township Square’s gazebo. Outside, hard-working garden club members teamed up to decorate the tree and hang the swags. Inside the hall, they strung garland across the balcony and stage, hung wreaths, and brightened the hall’s Victorian windows with glowing snowflakes.
Afterward, the group convened in the basement for a potluck and President Judy Williams called the meeting to order to plan the club’s next philanthropic effort.
“Ladies,” Williams announced before adjourning the meeting. “Next month is the gift exchange, and don’t forget to bring money for Outreach. Do we have volunteers to shop for our families?”
