Everyone in the Mystic Garden Club is working diligently on the Mystic Garden Club Greens Sale. The work begins in September and builds to a frenzy of activity by the week after Christmas. Even before the week of assembly women are busy going around cutting and gathering greens from all over town. Holly bushes are trimmed, unwanted evergreens are cut down. Members fill truck beds with greenery.
Meanwhile the pre-orders are taken and organized. So on Monday morning after Thanksgiving decorators and drivers arrive to create and deliver these wreaths all around town. Gift wreaths are given to a number of places around town, including the Nature Center, the Denison Homestead and the Mystic & Noank Library.
By Day 4 it is unbelievable the amount of beautiful decorations that have been lovingly created by skilled hands.
Happily the weather is holding clear through Saturday and we are anticipating a terrific 35th Annual Greens Sale.
