Members of Ceres Garden Club of Rye kicked off the fall season with their annual fundraiser “Pumpkins Plus…other Surprises” at the Rye Farmers’ Market. Shoppers were treated to glorious autumn floral arrangements and handmade items created by members.
Proceeds support the Club’s civic projects, such as the hanging baskets that grace the downtown area throughout the summer and the Blue Star Memorial at City Hall, a tribute to the Armed Forces of America, past, present, and future.
The Club meets at Rye Recreation the second Tuesday of every month at 12:30 and always welcomes new members to help them spruce up the community landscape. At their October meeting, members made Halloween/Fall-inspired tray favors for Meals on Wheels recipients.
