What a difference a year makes. This year, sadly, the story is not the same at the shore. What kinds of stories will the Gingerbreads tell this year? We anticipate at least one house with a tree through its roof!
Create a Holiday Centerpiece
There is still time to register for Create a Holiday Centerpiece for Teens on December 17 – this makes a very nice gift for a special middle or high schooler in your life. Next Monday’s Sprouts class is all about ginger and includes a visit to the Gingerbread Wonderland exhibit of course.
Our Retail Partners are open and ready to help you complete your gift list and so are the crafters at the Gingerbread Craft Show (weekends only). You might consider giving a membership to The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum. What a nice gift that would make for a new neighbor, a gardening mailman or a green-thumbed hairdresser. Call Ann Abrams to arrange for a gift membership to arrive in time for the holidays!
Arboretum Leaves December Issue
Be on the lookout for the next issue of Arboretum Leaves about December 14 – it’s filled with interesting classes and special programs for our Members.
