Plant Sales and Fundraisers

Plant sales are held every May in the Adam's Grocery Store parking lot, 1167 Main Street, Watertown, CT. A Buffet and/or Special Event is held in September or October to raise additional funds for the Club's civic development projects and yearly scholarship. View details of the 2023 event and event photos.

Civic Development - Planters

Spring planters are completed as weather permits. Look for them in early-mid April. The Club's Spring Design Contest in 2021, resulted in stunning planter designs. The contest was a huge success garnering a total of 150 votes from citizens of Watertown and neighboring areas. All seven entries were unique and showed astounding talent. View Top Three Winners .

Summer planters are completed around Memorial Day. They are lovingly cared for during the hot summer by a crew of volunteers, to keep the plants healthy and still beautiful in late September.

Then, until frost, planters are filled with autumn color. Just after Thanksgiving, they are decorated with evergreens and decor to brighten up those cold, darker days.

General Meetings

Suspension of indoor meetings due to the pandemic was lifted in March of 2022, allowing the long awaited resumption of in-person, indoor general meetings at the Club's usual venue. This year will, again, have a line-up of interesting speakers and events. The public is free to attend general meetings at no charge. Meetings and events are posted on the Club Calendar.

2023 July Garden Luncheon

Every year a member of the Club hosts the July Garden Luncheon. In 2023, members met at Shelley and Bill Hedberg's home

Civic Development - Gardens

The Pollinator Garden surrounding the Chamber of Commerce sign on Buckingham Street and Echo Lake Road was accomplished with the financial help of the Watertown Foundation. It will remain in place as part of the Watertown Cenntenial Park.

The spring, summer and fall flowers in the Oakville Post Office garden are awesome. The garden was expanded in 2021 with new plants and bulbs. This all-season garden was envisioned by a long-time resident of Oakville to honor his Mom's devotion to the beauty of flowers.
