THANK YOU TO ALL OUR AMAZING VOLUNTEERS!
As part of the club’s Golden Miles program
daffodil bulbs were planted on Saturday, October 29th at Wilton’s YMCA in honor of its 50th anniversary!! Over 60 Volunteers participated in this community wide event, including representatives from the YMCA
, the Wilton Garden Club, ASML
, the Wilton Kiwanis Club
, and M&T Bank
. Special thanks to the Kiwanis Club for their very generous donation to the Wilton Garden Club to help defray much of the expense of the daffodil purchase. Thanks also to Garden Club members Nancy Greeley
and Suzanne Knutson
whose planning, leadership, and organization made the day easy and fun! Read all about this event here.

WGC Philanthropy Committee members “give back $6900” to many Wilton organizations. Shoppers at the plant sale can feel good knowing that a large percentage of profits from the sale support many local organizations: the Norwalk River Valley Trail, Norwalk River Watershed Association, Wilton Land Conservation Trust, Wilton Library, Wilton Historical Society, and the Save the Sound Merwin Meadows Dana Dam Project. Town beautification projects like planting daffodils, the summer lamppost hanging baskets and winter snowflakes, and the town’s seven gardens maintained by the Garden Club are on this list as well.
