Garden Club of Long Beach Island Creates and Gives May Day Baskets

May 03, 2017

The yearly tradition of creating and distributing May Day baskets was recently continued by the Garden Club of LBI. On May 1, a group of about 20 members created 35 baskets for distribution to people on the Island and in Stafford Township who are in need of cheering up. The members always look forward to the morning of creativity and companionship, creating the arrangements in the hopes the baskets will bring a smile to the recipients.

Club members gather the names of people who can use a bit of cheer, either from folks they know or from churches or organizations to which the members belong. Names are given to Madelyn Pretrucha, chairwoman of the May Day Baskets, and she forms the committee whose members create the floral arrangements.  —P.J.
