25th Anniversary Garden Party

 

On August 9, 2018, the board of the GHS and The Bigelow Gardeners invited members of the community to attend a garden party to celebrate the garden’s 25th anniversary.

 

Under the leadership of Aileen Desbarats, a committee was established with tasks assigned to volunteers.

 

Jacques Valiquette, offered his lawn beside the garden for the venue. A tent was erected to protect from sun and rain. Though, thankfully the weather was wonderful. 

 

Rhubarb from the Bigelow Garden, (as well as from generous donours) was collected. A delicious Rhubarb Punch was served along with wine and finger food prepared by volunteers for all to enjoy. A beautiful cake was prepared and decorated with the Bigelow Garden blue bird, outlined with tiny blossoms from  borage plants in the garden.

 

It was a pleasure to welcome many past volunteers, contributors and local dignitaries who were able to attend. We would like to thank all the people who went out of their way to make the event such a success.
