A big thanks to our Beautification Committee members for brightening up our gardens this spring.
In late May, a dozen gardeners dug up hundreds of bulbs at the Newton Centre All America Garden. Pat Rand organized the volunteers, including Barbara Rutberg, for the summer preparations.
In early June, NCP Board Member Howard Sholkin and Alan Cushing helped their group move plants from the Newton Cemetery greenhouse to the garden. They planted dozens of annual flowers, replacing spring ones.
Beautification efforts have long been one of the pillars of our mission of Newton Community Pride and we greatly appreciate all our volunteers who put the “garden” in our Garden City.
