It's November and our annual Veteran's tree is up!
Each year we honor all who have served or are serving by decorating a tree with a paper ornament for each veteran from Berlin. So, if you have a family member who served or is serving, we want to include their name on our tree.
If you completed a form in a previous year, you don't need to do anything this year. We already have a name card to be hung on our tree.
If you've never done it before, please complete the form below so we can create an ornament for the service member(s) in your family to hang on the tree.
The Veteran's tree will be displayed in the Berlin Peck Memorial Library during the month of November. Please stop in to see it in deference to our service men and women.
We are proud to announce that Michael Vignone is Kensington Garden Club’s 2022 scholarship award recipient!
Michael has been a lifelong Berlin resident and recently graduated from Berlin High School. His passion for gardening stems from his late father. Michael started his own small cut flower farm business last summer called Little Farm on the Hill. He is currently studying at Penn State University, majoring in Horticulture. One day he hopes to run his own wholesale plant nursery. Please join us in wishing Michael continued success!
The scholarship is one of our largest contributions to the community that is made possible thru fundraising and public support. The selected senior needs to display an interest in pursuing a career in Conservation, Environmental Control, Horticulture or similar fields of study. Selection is made based on academic achievement in the related fields and favorable instructor recommendations. Congratulations, Michael!
