Can Do Our Best

The members of the Old Saybrook Garden Club extend our very grateful thanks to everyone for supporting our club’s annual Gardeners’ Market held on the Old Saybrook Town Green on May 6 and 7. We appreciate all the help and guidance we received from Old Saybrook Parks & Recreation, Buildings, and Fire departments; the fire marshal; and Police Chief Michael Spera and our Police Department, and we particularly acknowledge all the help and assistance given to us throughout the week by the Old Saybrook Public Works Department. Kudos go out to our own member volunteers, especially the committee members who helped us plan and accomplish this event.

An extra special thanks goes out to all our customers who generously support us so that we can beautify Old Saybrook throughout each year. As our only annual fundraiser, the 2022 Gardeners’ Market proceeds enable us to pursue our signature civic beautification projects. These efforts include planting and maintaining the 23 median planters along the middle of Main Street, our Constitution Garden in front of Saybrook Home, the flower beds at the Old Saybrook Fire House, and the container gardens at Acton Public Library and Police Station.

During the darker holiday season, we light up Main Street with wreaths and garland on the median lamp posts. Additionally, these proceeds allow us to offer college scholarships to local students who pursue ecologically related fields of study. Thanks to everyone’s generous support, our members can do our best to help Old Saybrook look its best this summer and all year long.
