As the holidays end for some, they begin for others. Let us all remember how fortunate we are to have our family and friends with us to celebrate this season.

Gift giving this year could be a challenge for many. Choosing the practical over the wished-for may have to take precedence following the devastation from Sandy, but just remember whatever you choose, the giving is what counts.

The club is still taking orders for new leaves on the Memorial Tree, and as soon as the tree is reinstalled they will be put on. It is a unique and lasting way to remember a special person, date or occasion such as an anniversary, wedding or to memorialize a lost loved one. Leaves are $50. Call and leave your name and what you are calling for on the club’s answering machine.

Don’t forget to keep up on club activities on the Facebook site set up by Linda Mantello. It is simply known as Brigantine Garden Club.  Go online to see pictures of gardens and get info on what we are doing. Also, remember to “like" the page on your computers.

All bed tenders note: Please remember to remove and store your signs for the winter.

Garden tip: Winter means drier air in our homes, which could affect your houseplants. An occasional misting can prevent leaf tips and edges from browning. Some plants such as spathe flower (peace lily) may even appreciate an occasional tepid shower.  

The club's informational answering machine number is (609) 266-3685. The club is made up of volunteers and response may not be immediate.

As you know, the club exists on the generosity of others and all donations are appreciated. They may be sent to the Brigantine Garden Club, P.O. Box 53, Brigantine NJ 08203.
