Holiday Wreaths Around Town
    The Orinda Garden Club (OGC) will once again hang wreaths around town on Saturday, Dec. 3 with its Holiday Wreath installation. The Boy Scouts will assist with taking the wreaths down Saturday, Jan. 7.
    The OGC tradition begins at the Orinda Community Center, 28 Orinda Way, where everyone gathers to add berries and bows to the 100 wreaths, before setting off in teams to decorate Orinda.
    Advice is to bring a warm coat and shoes for walking around. Also, bring gardening gloves. Wreath decorating at the Community Center goes from 8:30 a.m. – 10 a.m., wreath-hanging from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. If interested, RSVP by Nov. 30.
