Thirteen members gathered on the snowy morning of December 9 at the home of Ellen Whitney to create and decorate thirty-three boxwood trees for Concord’s Meals of Wheels recipients. Each tree was topped with a candy cane and holiday card from the Garden Club.
Many thanks to the lively and efficient crew of volunteers including Gail Sahney, Anne Umphrey, Mary Ann Ferrell, Melinda Shumway, Victoria Mulligan, Joan Campbell, Barbara Freeland, Maryann Street, Liz Berk, Leslie Cheney and Mary Kemp. Special thanks to Maryann Street who started this event several years ago and was so generous in passing along her tips and expertise. Thanks also to Ann Umphrey who helped deliver the trees to the Meals kitchen.
For many recipients, all part of Concord’s Meals on Wheels programs, this will be their only Christmas tree, and the trees were gratefully received.
