Carol Gay has been a member of the Stoneham Gardening Club for a long time now.
“I grew up in Stoneham and was taking my mother to the gardening club. Not long after that, I became a member.”
Gay said that the first record meeting of the Stoneham Gardening Club goes back to 1928. “We work at the estate at Whip Hill Manor near the Middlesex Fells Reservation,” Gay said. “The Garden Club uses it for their meeting. We mainly share information during thin winter months. During the warm months, we are out in the beautiful walled in garden.”
During the summer months, the club maintains the barrels in town and the planting near the police station along with other beautiful displays in town. During the winter, they decorate the Whip Hill Manor and host an open house event.
The Gardening Club is holding their first meeting of the 2013-14 season today at 11:30 a.m. hosted by Connie Filosi and Karen Sokol. After the luncheon and the meeting, Kerry Ann Mendez, author of “Design Tips for Knockout, Easy-Care Gardens will speak. Admission is $3.
