Merrimack Garden Club holding membership drive

The Merrimack Garden Club’s membership drive is in full swing.

The club hopes to encourage backyard gardeners who enjoy playing in the dirt and those with extensive gardening experience to join.

Its next meeting, on Tuesday, Feb. 23, will be held at St. James United Methodist Church to plan for the coming year. Members will discuss their annual plant sale, field trips, workshops, guest speakers and how they can continue with the beautification of the town.

The club maintains St. James Church, the Merrimack Public Library, the post office and Watson Park.

It has scheduled a field trip to Pickity Place this summer, as well as planned a summer social, holiday workshop and Christmas party/Yankee swap.
