Hooksett Garden Club takes on bigger challenges
"I love the people. I was never that big a gardener, but I really enjoy the club, especially the flower shows. But the people are what makes it so special. And when people move away, new people come in, but everyone is always really special," Lemon said.
"They are wonderful people, they are friendly, and when you walk into a meeting everyone gives you a hug," Schmidt said.
Sorel said she has long had the idea, but had to jump through hoops since it is a state-owned bridge. Finally given the go-ahead, Sorel said the club just recently finished the project.
Along with planting a memorial bush at the Congregational Church, Sorel said the club is already planning its next project.
"I have killed many plants, putting sun plants in the shade, so I needed to hang out with people who know more than I do. Now my thumb is greener than it used to be," Fardell said.
"As you get to retirement age it gives you something else to do than just watch your grandchildren, which I do," she laughed.
To be a member of the Garden Club an annual fee of $25 must be paid. Monthly meetings are at the Hooksett Library the last Wednesday of every month.
