Summer is Here

The Holden Beach Beautification Club has been busy prepping Padgett Garden and Town Hall for summer guests and holiday visitors.  The hard work of the Landscaping Committee is in full bloom in all the gardens and the special touches from the Seasonal Decor Committee at Padgett Garden and Town Hall enhance the effect.  The patriotic decor sets off the gorgeous floral display.  Thanks to both of these committees for all the hard work!  The Holden Beach Beautification Club wishes everyone a happy and safe Fourth of July!

Seasonal Decorations committee members Donna and Larry Blume, Marge Doyle and Judy Bayless placed Fourth of July decor. Not pictured: Becky Willis.
