The Sequim Prairie Garden Club reopens its general, monthly meetings to the public starting Monday, Sept. 12, in the Pioneer Memorial Park clubhouse, 387 E Washington St.
Coffee hour begins at 10 a.m. the first Monday each month (except holidays), with a guest speaker starting at 10:30 a.m.
Last year, with help from club volunteers led by Priscilla Hudson, the Michael Trebert Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and other volunteers, Hersey spearheaded the restoration of many headstones in the cemetery that had been vandalized and/or neglected.
Hersey has made amazing progress in giving these memorials the face lift they deserve, garden club officials said. He will share about his restoration process and give an update on the project’s progress. Masks are optional.
Club members also welcome park visitors to see a new outdoor historical sign by the back parking area. Jessica Diewald of In Graphic Detail designed the sign that shares the history of the park.
Next year, the garden club will celebrate 75 years of creating and caring for the park and renting the clubhouse.
