Beacon’s Tioronda Garden Club Gives Holiday Decorating Tips

Monthly meeting open to public every second Wednesday

Beacon’s Tioronda Garden Club will hold its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12, in the Howland Cultural Center in Beacon. Carol DiMicco, club member, will be the featured speaker in a presentation of holiday decorating suggestions. DiMicco will demonstrate various approaches to home decorating for the upcoming holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas using many materials found in nature.

Immediately following the program, there will be a social hour, with a buffet of home-baked refreshments, coffee and other hot beverages hosted by members Phyllis Horton, Margaret Capozzi and Phyllis Sandford. The public is always invited to the club’s monthly meetings, and new members are welcomed.

A number of garden club members met recently at the University Settlement Camp to once again prepare the numerous wreaths and garlands with holiday lights that will shortly adorn the lampposts along the length of Main Street. Beautification of Beacon throughout the year is one of the garden club’s major projects. Every year at this time, garden club members and employees from Beacon’s Public Works Department work together to mount the wreaths and connect electricity to set the lights twinkling for the holiday season.

The Tioronda Garden Club meets the second Wednesday of each month, excluding January and February, at the Howland Cultural Center in Beacon, 477 Main St. For further information and/or directions, call 845-831-4988 or 845-831-1541, or visit
