2020SpringFlingProgramDear Friends and Beautification Supporters,

We were in the final stages of planning our inaugural Spring Fling event when the arrival of Covid-19 brought that to a grinding halt. Artists had brought together a wonderful collection of creations for your enjoyment and auctioning pleasure, our musicians were getting tuned up, and DBC volunteers had brought huge bouquets of spring flower to an early bloom. Alas, it was not to be.

We are grateful to the many DBC supporters who contributed to our efforts in this first Spring Fling, and look forward to doing justice to your contributions when it becomes possible again. In the meantime, we hope you’ll enjoy this program we had planned for the event, and urge you to support the fine businesses who support DBC.

Stay well, and enjoy the wonderful world of flowers all around you.

Dave Sipple, DBC Chair

Welcome to the Denville Beautification Committee

The Beautification Committee was established to stimulate the love of gardening, to provide education and resources about gardening, to aid in the protection of native plants and trees, and to work for the preservation of Denville Township's beauty. Muriel Hepner, a long-time member and Denville resident, believed that "people would behave and think in a more positive manner if the town was well kept" is at the core of the Beautification Committee’s ideology.

What we do

Our volunteers meet on Saturday mornings to do some planting, weeding, pruning or mulching in a particular garden. During the summer months, we also meet on Wednesday evenings to get a little more work done around town. It is also our aim to educate and inspire our volunteers while we work. Volunteering with DBC will give you a chance to connect socially with other volunteers, share your gardening skills and be involved with the activities of the township. A little of your time goes a long way.

New members are always welcome! Our committee meetings are held every 2nd Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in town hall.
