Members Assist with Plantings at the Brewster Community Pool

The Cub was asked to advise on plantings to be placed at the new community pool.  All work was completed by the Department of Public Works

just in time for the ribbon cutting ceremony on

June 25, 2023. This is the only municipal pool on Cape Cod. Shown here is Club President Cheryl Walker with DPW Director Griffin Ryder.

Community Beautification

A major Club project is community beautification.  Members plant and maintain eight sites throughout Brewster, including the Gristmill, Drummer Boy Park, the Senior Center and several traffic islands.

In 2020, a new garden at the Brewster Post Office!

In summer 2020, then Vice President Karyn Frey noticed the bare ground near the front entrance and donated plants to start a garden. With plant donations from others, this garden continues to develop. The Postmaster has reported frequent compliments, saying that it is now a bright spot at a time when it is needed.

Helpful Hands at the Elijah Cobb House - 2020

"With the COVID quarantine forcing the closure of the Cobb House Museum as well as all but one of our 2020 fundraising events, BHS made the difficult decision to cut back on our expenses and place a hold on our garden plantings this season. The gardens had been lovingly created and maintained by Bob Hoxie of Great Hill Horticultural who based his design on Captain Cobb's great grand-daughter's diary entries.  We had thought to suffer along with blank earth for this year, and then the Brewster Garden Club came along. With the donation of their time and effort and inspiration, all of us who work behind the scenes at Cobb House are no longer greeted with bare ground. Our heartfelt thanks to all."
