Newark Garden Club recently planted over 200 red geraniums and blue ageratum in Central Park for Memorial Day.
Planting flowers in the park before Memorial Day is a 30-year tradition. The park is the memorial area that honors local veterans in all branches of the U.S. armed forces who died in service. Flowers are planted annually in the park are patriotic shades of red, white or blue.
Newark Garden Club thanks a crew from village operations for its assistance in this year’s planting.
The club planted annuals at Newark-Arcadia Historical Society, under the direction of Christina Champion and Julia Young in memory of their mother, Muriel Gorall, a 27-year club member and charter member of the museum.
Red geraniums were planted in the circular raised bed in Elliott Park, next to Dunkin’ Donuts on state Route 31 in the village of Newark.
