NORWICH ― The Norwich Garden Club, a local organization that aims to beautify the area and engage in civic activities, met Thursday, November 10 for their final meeting of the season, where they appointed new officers for the 2023 season.

Now the club is gearing up for their next meeting in early 2023, where they will plan out meetings and activities for the 2023 season.

“We try to do that in the very first part of the year so we have time to get our booklet printed up. It’s a small booklet, it tells each month what the plans are for the meeting, and where it’s going to be, and who’s on the committees for refreshments and so on for that,” said Ericksen. “We try to have some on horticulture, some are education, some are just workshops for making things, like we did cement vases and the pressed flowers this year.”

The Norwich Garden Club is always seeking new members. Those interested in joining can call Ericksen at 607-334-7404, or Treasurer Jean Hayes at 561-758-3696.
