Members of the Hollyberry Garden Club were busy last weekend as they gathered greens and prepared for the club’s annual greens sale. This anticipated event starts at 9 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 10 at the , 617 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd.
For decades, the Hollyberry greens sale has provided local residents with fresh and beautifully-made wreaths, swags, kissing balls, topiaries and table-top trees and other fresh Christmas arrangements.
The money raised is used by the club to pay for the upkeep of the native garden, the Hatton-Regester Green garden and the Severna Park Genesis Elder Care garden therapy program.
“Locals really look forward to our sale. Things go really fast,” said chairperson Maryann Neal. “Even though the flier says we are open until 12:30 p.m.-it’s not unusual for us to be sold out by 11 a.m. So people tend to get to the sale early. Our return customers know that our prices are fair, our decorations are creative and fresh and the money is used to beautify the Park. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
A member of District II of the Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland, Hollyberry Garden Club was started in 1955 in the community of West Severna Park. It has since grown and includes members from all Severna Park communities.
