gardeners dedicated

and education.

The sale of custom engraved bricks in the walk of Old Library Park has been a major source of fund raising for PBGC since 1997.  We hope you will buy one or more to honor family, friends, pets, special events, etc. -- which will support our work in the community.  Thank you.

The Arbor at Updike Park is Restored

Pictured at the installation of the new arch (l to r) are Kathleen Romeo, President of Plum Beach Garden Club, Mary Ann Hackett, President of HistWick, and Sheila Skiffington, member of both groups and project facilitator.  On the ladder, the master carpenter personally installs this treasure.

     Time had taken its toll on the curved arch over the Arbor at Updike Park in Wickford. This village landmark was deteriorating and in danger of collapse. Thanks to the collaboration of three community organizations, an exact replica of the original was master-crafted and installed in the Summer of 2021.

     Financial contributions from HistWick and Plum Beach Garden Club covered the cost of labor and the town of North Kingstown covered the material costs.

     Throughout the year the Arbor at Updike Park is a treasured landmark – definitely

worth saving.
