The GFWC Orwell Fortnightly members are at it again. Members Marion Downey, Vera Blakely, Anne Harper, Rita Baccei, Loretta Lee and Loretta's husband Louis, worked on our annual community beautification project in Orwell "gardening spruce-up".
Louis Lee cut out buckthorn and nut tree seedlings growing in the bed. Members pulled the dead stalks out and removed dead branches that had blown in. They also removed leaves and grass.
In the fall the garden committee, with help from the membership, will dig up the garden. Loretta Lee planted annual plants in the garden before Memorial Day that added color to the Orwell Memorial Day Parade.
