NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The New Canaan Garden Club's spring fundraising event, New Canaan in Bloom, generated funds to support the restoration of the Peony Walk at Waveny Park as well as the civic beautification and educational outreach activities of the garden club.

A portion of the proceeds of New Canaan in Bloom was also donated to the Food Pantry Garden located at St. Mark's Episcopal Church.
