Behind the Greening of Calvert County Courthouse Square

Rosemary Dawley and Arleen Strider make roping in preparation for the greening of the Calvert courthouse in Prince Frederick.

    As they have for 80 years, the members of the Calvert Garden Club meet on Monday, December 5 to cut evergreen boughs and materials with which to construct holiday decorations for the County Courthouse Square in Prince Frederick. Members gather again at 9am on Tuesday December 6 to construct and decorate wreaths, swags and roping. With the assistance of county public works employees, the finished decorations will be transported to and hung in the courthouse, where they will remain until just after the first of the new year.
