New this year the holiday boutique and luncheon was held at the newly opened Hotel LBI located at the entrance to our island. The Garden Club members created handcrafted items and lovely holiday greens baskets. Our delicious cookies were as popular as ever. Outside vendors came from near and far to participate in our first pop-up-boutique.
