Update re: CoVid19 Response

At the direction of GCNJ, all Garden Club events on the state level as well as the individual club level are suspended thru May. This may be extended.

We will not meet for our usual monthly meetings until the Fall. Also Friends and Flowers is currently suspended. The Red Bank flower pots project has been canceled this summer. Since the Kusama exhibit has been cancelled by The New York Botanical Garden, it will take place on a later date. There are no plans for another date as yet. If you have already mailed or given us a check for the trip, please e-mail Ronnie L. or call her and let her know, and she will work with you regarding this.

Our annual luncheon for June has been cancelled as well.

We will get back together as a group as soon as it is deemed prudent. Our biggest concern is for the health and safety of each and every member and friend.

Our President, Leslie, is taking good care of us. We will certainly come back together in the future!

Please take good care of yourselves and feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

March Meeting Coming Up!

Our speaker is the Executive Director of the American Littoral Society. He will illustrate the many ways we can protect our environment and preserve our precious waterways. Mr. Dillingham is well versed in his field and holds a degree in Coastal and Marine Resource Management from the University of Rhode Island.

We are a coastal community, and we are interested in learning more about what can be done, as well as what is being done to mitigate the effects of climate change and pollution, among other issues.

Join us for this presentation.
