Hollis selectmen recognize Colonial Garden Club

HOLLIS – The Hollis Board of Selectmen recently issued a proclamation honoring the Colonial Garden Club of Hollis on its 50th anniversary.

The proclamation recognizes the club for its work in enhancing the beauty of Hollis by maintaining many gardens throughout the town since 1966.

"It is an honor to receive this proclamation and be acknowledged by the town for the work we do," said Suzie Greco, club president.

Throughout the years, the club has maintained and landscaped gardens at the Hollis Social Library, Town Hall, Always Ready Engine House, Monument Square, the Lucie BeBee Garden, the Lawrence Barn Garden and the Therapeutic Garden for Home Health & Hospice. The club also decorates the many town buildings with wreaths and greens during the holidays.

Through its annual plant sale and garden tours, the club gives scholarships yearly to high school students and contributes to community projects such as the Ambulance Fund, Beaver Brook, Hilda’s Walk, Save the Elm Project and more. The club also participates in the "Art in Bloom" exposition at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
