The Garden Club of Woodbridge recently received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection and the Osborne Homestead Museum in Derby for its participation in decorating the Museum for the holidays along with several other garden clubs and nonprofit organizations. This year’s theme was “Storybook Holiday” and the Garden Club of Woodbridge was tasked with decorating its assigned spaces inspired by four of Aesop’s Fables. One purpose behind the annual project is to heighten public awareness of the Museum, which is the former home of Frances Osborne Kellogg, a prominent local industrialist, suffragette, conservationist and philanthropist. The Museum is a member of Connecticut Historic Gardens and is one of fourteen sites on the Connecticut Women’s Heritage Trail. Members involved were Angela Bradley, Joanne D’Angelo (President), Martha German, Mary Klochkoff, Barbara Hagan-Smith, Cindy Marien, Susanne Pimer and Jane Gelernter.
