On Dec. 2, the Bow Garden Club distributed poinsettias from the Old Town Hall. While customers came to pick up the holiday flowers, club members worked creating swags and wreaths to decorate town buildings and the five signs welcoming people to Bow.

Members tied boughs of hand-picked balsam, spruce, cedar, hemlock and white pine branches to create festive sprays or swags for the Old Town Hall entrance doors and to adorn the pillars at the town offices. They also decorated 18  wreaths with sprigs of holly, winter berries, pinecones and birch bark cut into star shapes. The wreaths were placed at the entrances of the Old Town Hall, the Bow Bog Meeting House, Baker Free Library, the Department of Public Works, the Old School House, the Community Center and the new Safety Building.
