Civic Development

The Civic Development Committee creates and maintains the following public gardens in our

1. Boothbay Memorial Park which includes Armillary and Butterfly Gardens

2. Blue Star Memorial

3. Gazebo on the Common

4. Civil War Monument.
We maintain these gardens throughout the spring, summer and fall. Four weeding teams are formed each year and meet the first Monday of the month at 9:00am at the Armillary Garden. All members are encouraged to participate, one day per month, on one of the four weeding teams and enjoy our gardens.

In addition, in the spring, we plant annuals in window boxes and distribute them to public
buildings in the Boothbay Region.

In November, Christmas wreaths are decorated by our members at a workshop close to Thanksgiving and placed on forty town monuments and public buildings.

Karen and I trimmed the boxwoods and weigelas at the Armillary Garden and did some extra weeding. We had a great time, and we'll look forward to others joining the fun next time.

If anyone would like to join the Civic Development committee, let us know. Many fun times and decisions will be made for the upcoming year...Christmas wreaths, garden flowers and garden design with changes coming to the Memorial Garden. It's time to put more of our ideas to work for the Boothbay Region.
