Garden Club meets at Revolutionary War Garden 

Angle Tree Garden Club members gathered at the newly-renovated Revolutionary War Memorial Garden at the Routes 1 and 120 intersection—an authentic-looking flagpole, significant to the era, with a Betsy Ross flag is now up and looks great. President Janet Pion talked about the plantings and their relevance in the garden. It is one of several gardens maintained by ATGC. Then off to the Sweet Club House in Attleboro for the first meeting of the club’s 2019-2020 season and a potluck lunch. There was a patriotic red, white, and blue theme; delicious flag cake made by Dianne McColgan, centerpiece by Carolyn Coulombre.

Lenny Butler, an award winning master woodworker, visited the North Attleboro Senior Center on Wednesday, Sept. 25, to display and discuss his latest creations, a Pennsylvania spice box and a wooden gift box. He explained the process he followed and some of the intricacies involved. At the end of his talk, he raffled off the gift box, which he estimated took about 20 hours to make.
