Every year members of the Rake and Hoe Garden Club prepare Holiday Gift Bags for the Veterans at Lyons Hospital in Basking Ridge, NJ. Once again, Betty Gulino (pictured above front row far left), coordinated the collection and delivery of 140 holiday gift bags donated by club members. These gift bags are designed to bring holiday cheer to the veterans who have served our country and deserve our thanks and well wishes.
