The Pawling Garden Club was founded in 1935. Each year, they hold a Spring Market, usually on the first Saturday of June. The group plants a tree in Pawling in honor of Arbor Day, presents geranium plants to families of active-duty military in Pawling, and continues to beautify Pawling with the planting of daffodil bulbs throughout our town.
