Garden Club of Aiken celebrates Christmas early with distribution of orders from greenery sale

It looked a lot like Christmas on Monday at the Aiken County Historical Museum.

The circular driveway in front of the former Winter Colony home known as Banksia was where people picked up their orders from the Garden Club of Aiken’s greenery sale.

In all, 203 orders were received by the organization.

Early in the afternoon, members of the club began sorting and tagging the wreaths, decorations and other items that had arrived from North Carolina by truck.

The orders then were available for distribution during a two-hour period that was scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the sale will help fund a landscaping project at the Aiken County Public Library, which is undergoing a major renovation.

Money raised during last year’s greenery sale also supported that project.

“Everything is presold,” said Martha Wolf, who is the club’s president. “We call all of our friends, and we put up posters around town. Each year, it’s growing a little bit. We were a little worried last year because of the (novel coronavirus) pandemic, but we did well.”
