Maureen Christmas interpreted a Grape Vine Screen by Ch'oe Sokhwan. Using a pair of frames as a base, a grapevine was wound through wire mesh. Plant material invoking the feeling of the screen’s design was selected and put in discretely placed test tubes.
Thelma Shoneman interpreted Three-Quarter Armor for a Cuirassier. Plant material was selected and manipulated to imply the construction of the armor.
Two lectures have been held since the lecture series began in 2013. The first lecture was on the effects of climate change on local flora, and the second lecture was on the best plants for our gardens.
Going forward, lectures will be held approximately every two years.

|Seven years after the events of September
11, 2001, an Acton memorial site was
dedicated using two pieces of the iron
structure of the twin towers. The memorial
was placed on Main Street in front
of the Public Safety Building in memory
of the two Acton residents who lost their
lives that day. The site consists of an iron
sculpture surrounded by a brick walk area
and garden. Each element of the design
represents the flight of one of the aircraft
involved that day. The garden area
Flight 93 and the meadow near Shanksville, PA.
This year the Garden Club was asked if its members could help restore and assist in maintaining the garden area around the site. A group was formed to make an assessment of the site. A work day was then spent raking, weeding, transplanting, trimming and edging the area. Members will periodically return to do additional improvements and tending to keep the area well cared for.
