found people who value nature and the land- scape; it's a great group that I've come to cherish." In 2016, Varnau won the Thrall Bowl and was the club's assistant arranger for Art in Bloom at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. "This has been a great year for me," she notes. Club members maintain many leadership roles in community organizations like Weston Historical Society, Women's Community League thrift shop (which funds scholarships for Weston High School seniors), Friends of the Library, Town Tree Committee, and Town Planning Board. For residents without con- nections to local schools, the garden club can be a strong entrée to the community and a great place for continuing education. Weston Garden Club has never strayed from its roots. With a monthly talk on back- yard birds, an overnight field trip to Coastal Maine Botanical Garden, and frequent visits to Garden in the Woods, the club serves cur- rent members' interests. An important 75th anniversary gift to the town will be deter- mined after plans for town center improve- ments are finalized. As they work at the watering trough and the town center plantings, members always hear grateful comments from passersby. "We know our contributions are appreciated," says Pohl. "Our 75th anniversary celebration brings us all back to the core of why we do what we do. We believe in contributing to our community, and to increasing and sharing our knowledge and love of gardening." 120 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 6 Weston Garden Club
