New Hampton Garden Club is Seeking New Members
 
The New Hampton Garden Club is reaching out to the community to get new members.  The Garden Club meets the 1st Tuesday, April through December, at the Gordon-Nash Library.  These meetings begin at 9:30 AM and start with coffee and refreshments before their business meeting and program.  It is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and make new friends while learning more about all phases of gardening.  Their biggest projects are civic beautification, garden therapy to the elderly at Golden Crest Retirement Community, and working with the 5th Grade Jr. Garden Club at the New Hampton Community School. The club also maintains a table at the library where members put weekly floral or hobby displays.  The dues are $15.00 and you can pick up a membership flyer at the library or just send your name, address, and contact information with a check made out to the New Hampton Garden Club and mail it to PO Box 242, New Hampton, NH 03256.
