Southborough Gardeners ask for contributions to annual Wreath program

Above: For decades, Southborough Gardeners have decorated the Town for the holidays. They’re asking the community to pitch in to make it possible again this year. (images clockwise cropped from photos by Susan Fitzgerald, contributed and from a 2017 instagram post.)

This week, I wrote about the Cub Scouts’ annual fundraiser selling Hanukkah candles and Christmas wreaths. They aren’t the only group already eager to talk wreaths.

The Southborough Gardeners are preparing to spruce up the Town for the holidays again. Decorating Southborough’s municipal buildings and landmarks with holiday wreaths is an annual effort for the group. They’re putting out a call for donations to help fund the program. According to a representative, those beautification costs have gone up.

I know that thinking about Christmas/holiday decorations now can feel like rushing the holidays. But these efforts take volunteers time to organize.

Here is the the Gardeners’ call for support:

Southborough Gardeners wreath (contributed)The Southborough Gardeners are once again preparing to decorate the town with 100 fresh evergreen wreaths. It is a cheerful reminder to town residents and commuters that pass your establishments each day that the holidays are fast approaching.

The Gardeners do this as a free community service to beautify our town in keeping with our nonprofit charter. We use the funds that are raised by our volunteer gardeners and donated by generous contributors such as yourself to offset the cost of the wreaths and decorative bows. We would greatly appreciate it if you could make a donation in an amount of your choice to help offset the costs of the wreaths.

Your business will be acknowledged by name for your generous contribution on If you wish to remain anonymous and/or wish that we acknowledge the amount of your contribution kindly let me know.

Tax Deductible Donations can be made out to Southborough Gardeners and sent directly to:
Southborough Gardeners
P.O. Box 184
Southborough, MA 01772

Traditional locations that the Gardeners decorate included Town buildings and businesses on Main Street, the Veterans’ Monument, the Senior Center, Cemetery, Cultural Arts Center, Police and Fire stations, and the Library. They also hang them on businesses that help support the program through their donations.
