Four Lanes End Garden Club
Langhorne, Bucks County, Pennsylvania
LAUREL AWARDS 2021
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.

2023 LAUREL AWARD
Sandra Billington was selected as our 2023 Laurel Award winner because of her dedication to Four Lanes End Garden Club. A member since 2010, Sandra has been chair of the Hospitality Committee for years. Arriving early for each meeting, she starts the coffee and tea, keeps track of the supplies, contacts the hostesses to remind them to bring their social hour goodies, and makes sure the food table is pleasing to the eye. When not busy with the morning social hour she sets up the December and May luncheons, is active on the Holiday House Tour each year, sometimes playing the piano all day during the tour, and she helps water the town's haybaskets throughout the summer. Sandra worked diligently to document and present criteria to the Washigton Crossing Chaper of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) to ensure that FLEGC received its due recognition for its work in perserving and maintaining the historic Richardson House in Langhorne. She regularly donates food and money to local charities. Always willing to lend a hand, worked at golf tournaments that benefited our Club. All of her volunteer work is done with a smile and a pleasant disposition making her the perfect candidate for the 2023 Laurel Award.
