NEW HAVEN, Mo. - On April 6, we started our second year maintaining the water garden at the New Haven Care Center. This activity will continue the first Monday of each month through October (10/06) at 8:00 A.M. As a related activity we also plan to continue our “Share the Blooms” program on these Mondays.
