Residential Garden Award

Exeter Area Garden Club presented their award for Outstanding Residential Garden to Charles and Jean Tucker from Exeter.

A photo display was pleasant viewing, reminding everyone of summer’s beauty and garden’s bounty. The club’s commercial award was presented to the Remick & Gendron Funeral Home, Lafayette Rd., Hampton, in November. Their efforts are appreciated by all who see their gardens.
