Family, friends, food and football – not to mention the ever-fabulous NYC Macy’s parade – what could be better? As Rowayton Gardeners, we are grateful for this opportunity to thank our community for their appreciation of our efforts throughout the year, to thank the hundreds that take part in our programs and field trips, to thank businesses, organizations and governmental partners who help us to increase awareness about our shared environment and to express gratitude to our fellow members (all 125 of them!) who collaborate in so many wonderful ways to achieve our club’s many-faceted mission. Happy Thanksgiving to All!
