The Penbrooke Garden Club recently generously donated $1,350 to the Centerville-Washington Park District! The money has been earmarked to fund landscaping around the Smith House at Bill Yeck Park, shade trees in the new area of the Dog Park at Oak Grove Park, and an Eagle Scout project to replace trail markers at Grant Park.
The Penbrooke Garden Club receives funds to donate to other organizations from their annual May plant sale. Volunteer gardeners in the group donate hardy perennials, herbs, ground covers, shrubs, and wildflowers grown in their own gardens to be sold. “We like to use the money we make at the plant sale to fund gardening projects that benefit the very community where we receive our funds,” said Mary Sipple, President of the Penbrooke Garden Club.
This is the eighth consecutive year that the club has made a donation to the Centerville-Washington Park District. Thank you, Penbrooke Garden Club!
