Members of the Rake and Hoe Garden Club of Westfield met at the First Baptist Church of Westfield where Mobile Meals originates and made 45 small floral arrangements to accompany the meals delivered that day. The club performs this service twice a year which is much appreciated by the clients who look forward to receiving these colorful arrangements.
