Hi, Neighbors. Now's your chance to help beautify Merchantville's West End for the season! This Saturday, November 23rd, we will be adding holiday greens to the planters on the West End. Saturday should be a perfect day to get some fresh air - 50 degrees and sunny. We are meeting at 9AM at the Wellwood Park gazebo. Please bring gloves and pruners if you have them. As the English writer John Heywood said "many hands make light work" so all volunteers are welcome. Please spread the word!
Dickinson's Holiday Greenery has partnered with a local New Jersey grower to provide the freshest, highest-quality holiday decor products at a great price, right here in town. They're offering farm-fresh 100% double sided real Balsam Fir wreaths - 24" diameter, 6" deep, vibrant red Poinsettias comes in foil wrapped 8-inch pots and 75' coils of freshly cut NJ white pine. They're currently taking pre-orders for pickup in the first or second week of December. Pickup details will be sent via email as soon as they are finalized. For more information contact them here. Shop small, shop local!
The Garden Club invites all residents to join them for a morning devoted to greening-up the Borough's downtown for the holidays. On Saturday, November 16th, we are going to decorate the downtown hanging baskets and planters with fresh greens. If you would like to join them, they are meeting at the gazebo - at Centre and Chestnut - at 10:00 a.m. Dress warmly, and please bring work gloves and pruning shears if you have them. If you have greens you would like to contribute, they encourage you to bring them to the gazebo with you on Saturday morning. They hope to see you there!
