When I learned that the Nauset Garden Club (NGC) was returning to Crosby Mansion to do Art In Bloom, I smiled because I knew what to expect. Soon, members of the NGC would start showing up, earlier than expected, to work their magic.
It never ceases to amaze me how this dedicated group of women can transform our historic residence into a thing of beauty with their art and floral decorations. At every Crosby Mansion open house someone asks me when the next Christmas at Crosby will occur. I explain that the NGC does this once every three years because it is such a major project. Visitors don’t necessarily understand the work involved, but they sure do enjoy the end product. So, to the members of the NGC, I say, “Thank You” for your generosity and talent which are very much appreciated. Please keep coming back to the mansion to do Art in Bloom and Christmas at Crosby. Your fundraisers highlight our work in restoring and preserving the mansion known as “Tawasentha.”
