The Middletown Garden Club is celebrating their 100th anniversary on May 15, 2015! Beginning May 11, the Garden Club will exhibit panels throughout Russell Library that document the history of the club and highlight various projects and activities through the years. The Garden Club will also display memorabilia and books written by current and past members in the display case beginning June 1; both exhibits will continue through the end of June. The Middletown Garden Club has a long history of working in and around the Russell Library. The Club is currently planning a new garden for the corner of Broad and Court Street, the site of the former beloved flower garden which was lost during last year's renovations to maintain the integrity of the building's structure.
