The Golf Course Maintenance crew of Highlands Falls Country Club generously donated their time and energies to enhance the landscaping at Peggy Crosby Center on a beautiful spring day back in April. In conjunction with a generous grant provided by the Laurel Garden Club and the landscaping work of Canty Worley, Fred Gehrisch’s crew dug right in to plant, move, mulch, clear and replant the grounds around Peggy Crosby Center, making the facility a more beautiful environment for the PCC tenants, clients, volunteers and the Town of Highlands.
When it was time for The Literacy Council of Highlands to move to larger offices, the Peggy Crosby Center was sad to see them go, but happy for the role it played in providing the space that helped nurture LCH’s growth.
When LCH’s offices were vacated, PCC acted quickly with a remodel of the 1735-square-foot space. Before that facelift launched, some rooms looked much the same as they did when PCC was a hospital. Everyone agreed, it was time for a re-do!
In a collaborative effort, the Laurel Garden Club, noted Landscape Designer Canty Worley, and Highlands Falls Country Club members are creating a “pocket ecosystem” right in the middle of Highlands.
The LGC has generously supported improvements to the grounds of the venerable Peggy Crosby Center, site of Highlands’ first hospital, over the past several years through grants. Canty Worley has worked with PCC selecting and installing a captivating mix of flowers and foliage to create this cutting-edge urban ecosystem and developing a pollinator habitat.
On June 23rd, the Spartina 449 store in Highlands sponsored a “Mermaids for a Cause” Event to benefit Peggy Crosby Center. Supporters, tenants and friends of PCC were invited to the event, that was also open to all visitors who came into the store that day. Shoppers were treated to wine, cheese and fruit while they perused the beautiful Spartina handbags, accessories, jewelry and clothing. The event included a raffle of numerous items donated by Spartina and other Highlands merchants. Spartina 449 offered a discount of 15% on all purchases between 1:00 - 3:00 and donated 10% of these sales to Peggy Crosby.
