To gift a child
with a love of reading
is to open
a magic door.

Get by with a little help from our Friends

It has been a challenging year for many. Those who have been laid off, parents learning to homeschool, children missing their friends, small businesses struggling by with limited customers. In our small village we are fortunate to have several non-profits and charitable organizations that bring us music, history, the arts, and beauty, just to name a few. The Peninsula Home and Garden Club is one of those organizations with a mission to provide a memorial to all those that have passed in Peninsula and Boston Township, by decorating the Peninsula downtown bridge through summer, fall and winter.

Each year the Garden Club participates in several events to raise funds towards the cost of these seasonal decorations of summer flowers and American flags, fall cornstalks, pumpkins and bows, and winter holiday greens and luminaries. For 2020 we budgeted approximately $1400 to cover these costs. This year we have an added expense of replacing the signpost which holds the original Garden Club Memorial sign at an estimated cost of $350. As with many organizations, this year there has been little opportunity to participate in any sort of fund raisers. We are asking you, our Peninsula and Boston Township Friends, to consider a donation to support this year`s bridge decorations and the new signpost. Every little bit will help the Garden Club continue with our traditional decorations and service to our communities.

Donations can be made out to: Peninsula Home and Garden Club.
