Earlier this year, a longtime member of the Cheverly Garden Club, perished in a fire that destroyed her home. Councilmember and Cheverly Community Market Board member MJ Coolen was instrumental in helping out in the aftermath.
Over the years, the Syslo property on 59th Place was the source of many of the lovely plants and cuttings that the Cheverly Garden Club sold at its annual spring sale. this Saturday, the Garden Club will be giving away the remaining rescued plants (one per person, please). It's a nice way to remember someone who, in her own small way, made Cheverly a more beautiful, neighborly place, and we thank the Garden Club for this lovely gesture.
