Wareham Garden Club members have brought moments from Wareham’s history to life through flower arrangements for a special exhibition in the library, open Friday and Saturday from 10 to 4.
A hurricane, gas explosion, the War of 1812, and Captain John Kendrick’s trip to Japan were the events that inspired the designers to use flowers, inventive structures, and thoughtful arrangements to evoke the events.
Each of the historically-inspired arrangements is accompanied by an informative poster with photos or illustrations of the event, along with brief historical information, put together by Historical Society President Angela Dunham. And for those interested in learning more, librarian Stephen Miller wrote brief histories of the event on handouts that include further reading for both kids and adults.
