President’s Message, 2017

Dear Pepperell Garden Club Members,

As president, it has been a pleasure to work with PGC members this past year.
One of our biggest accomplishments was a major restoration of the Rail Trail Clock
Garden last fall.

The Garden Federation of Massachusetts recognized our club in the spring with a
Continuing Civic Projects Award for our work at the Rotary. We designed, installed and
for three decades have maintained the gardens at this town focal point.
Thanks to all our members’ efforts we had another successful plant sale in May.
Throughout the summer, the containers around town never looked better. In addition to
the Rotary and Clock Garden, weeds were kept in check at the Senior Center, Town
Hall and VFW gardens.

As we approach our club’s 50th anniversary in 2018, we will celebrate with a few
surprises at our holiday party. This is also the perfect opportunity to renew our
participation in the Fourth of July parade.

I look forward to another year of fun, great programs and gardening together.


Terry Geddes
