AUGUST 2018

RUMSON GARDEN CLUB
and OFL

The Oceanic Free Library presented a plaque of appreciation to Joan Lynch, President of the Rumson Garden Club. Pari Harrison, RGC, was responsible for spearheading the program to replace our old wooden flower boxes with new white boxes, which include an efficient watering system.   RGC Members create beautiful seasonal box arrangements and provide us with holiday greens, every year.  The plaque will be installed in the front of the library building. THANK YOU RUMSON GARDEN CLUB!
