May Day Baskets 2023
Every year on the first of May, The Garden Club of LBI has a tradition of taking pretty flower baskets to friends and neighbors in need of a little cheer! This year nineteen members of The Garden Club chose to continue this tradition. They gathered at the Surf City Yacht Club to enjoy each other’s company and prepare baskets.
Flowers included pink roses and pink carnations, lime green and white button mums plus greenery selections from the club members’ gardens. More than forty baskets were completed. The members then volunteered to deliver the baskets and greet the recipients personally. In addition to friends and neighbors, flowers were delivered to Southern Ocean County Hospital, the hospital residency, and Genesis Health Center.
One of the baskets was particularly special – delivered to a former Garden Club member as she turned 100 years!
