Richardson House Slated for a New Sidewalk
Several years ago, Four Lanes End Garden Club committed and earmarked $10,000 to help Langhorne Borough replace the sidewalk at the historic Richardson House. At a recent Council Meeting, members of the FLEGC were on hand to presented a check to Council for $10,000.00. The Richardson House is located in the borough at the corner of Bellevue and Maple Avenues. Four Lanes End Garden Club is proud to hold its monthly meetings at this location and works hard to maintain the outside space for the public's use and enjoyment.

One of the founding principles of Langhorne Council
for the Arts is the belief that the arts make a
community more vibrant and connected.
What's happened since we announced Porch Fest
is certainly proof of that! Our friends at
Historic Langhorne Association
will have their library/museum open for the day.
Our friends at the American Legion/Jesse Soby Post
will be grilling burgers and hot dogs, and Langhorne
Coffee House will extend their hours and have a
special menu for Porch Fest attendees. Please be
sure to patronize these places tomorrow as you
enjoy the sidewalk chalk art and fabulous music around the
borough. One more happy shout-out is needed: to Renee Rumsey and members of Four Lanes End Garden Club! They graciously volunteered to make flower arrangements for each of the porches. This -- all this -- is what community is all about! Thanks in advance to all who are coming together to make our first Langhorne Porch Fest a wonderful day to remember!
Four Lanes End Garden Club (FLEGC) is one of the twelve garden clubs comprising District XI of The Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania.
Each district president is asked to nomimate a club member
for a Laurel Award. The Laurel Award is a non competitive
award given to club members who go above and beyond
their regular office, chair, or membership duties.
FLEGC's current president, Renee Rumsey nominated
Alice Prizer for said Laurel award which was presented
Wednesday, October 20, 2021, at the Fall District XI Meeting.
Alice does go above and beyond by quietly and regulary weeding and watering the gardens at the Richardson House. No one assigned her this duty, yet she has been doing it for many years and few knew.
P.S. Alice happens to be in her late eighties! Such a positive example to young and old.
May She Rest in Peace
Sonia Martini a long standing member and former president of the Four Lanes End Garden Club past away. She was a gentle, but strong woman who was the sunshine of our club. To honor her memory, the Garden Club added another beautiful shrub to the Richardson Garden. As this shrub grows and flourishes, the nearby plaque reminds us of Sonia and how she helped our club to also grow and flourish.
