The Durham Garden Club is taking orders now for their individually decorated holiday wreaths. The wreaths, a popular Durham tradition for decades, will be decorated and delivered by December 1.
The club offers four styles of wreaths and two styles of sprays. Each live green wreath is decorated to individual order with natural materials and is finished off with a colorful bow.
The twelve-inch wreaths are available in traditional, victorian, and della robbia styles or can be purchased undecorated. The club offers a thirty inch wreath in traditional or della robbia style. Sprays are also offered in traditional or della robbia style. The bow colors are red, red plaid, burgundy, gold, and antique white.
Prices range from $17 for an undecorated wreath to $125 for an extra large della robbia wreath. The traditional twelve-inch wreath, the most popular of all of the offerings, sells for $40.
Please call Kerrie Flanagan at 860 349-6520 by October 31 to place your order.
The wreath sale is the club’s main source of revenue. The club recently replanted the triangle at Routes 17 & 79, adding a farm implement to the colorful mix of annuals and perennials.
A major project has been tree planting and, this spring, the club planted eight trees, four at the library and four at the entrance road to the high school complex.
Members also plant and maintain the gardens at Town Hall, Korn School, and Brewster School. The club funded a garden at Coginchaug Regional High School and contributed to the landscaping at the Durham Public Library It also provides holiday wreaths for Town Hall and the library.
