BAY HEAD — The Seaweeders Garden Club celebrated its 60th anniversary at Half Moon Point in Point Pleasant, with dozens of new and old members recounting their times in the club.
The Seaweeders are open to any residents from Bay Head and Mantoloking, and work on many areas within the towns, such as the Patty Brand Memorial Garden in Mantoloking, Twilight Lake in Bay Head and “The Patch,” a garden at the Bay Head recycling center open to all residents to plant flowers, fruits and vegetables all year round.
The club will be taking a “whole-year approach” to celebrating its anniversary, according to Jen Bredin, president of the Seaweeders. This event marked the first of many celebrations and events the club has hosted all year round.
Members enjoyed the cocktail party last Thursday, Sept. 28. At this event, members of the club announced a new “coffee table” book the club will be releasing just in time for Christmas. The book, which is still in production, will feature archival information, photos and “60 years worth of flower shows, community gardens, scholarship winners and all the things we do,” said Ms. Bredin.
The Seaweeders are also planning to do a 60th anniversary project. Ms. Bredin said, while the plan is still in the works, the club would like to partner with the state to plant and grow flowers on the dunes of the beaches of Bay Head and Mantoloking.
