CARNEYS POINT, N.J. — Members of the Woman’s Club of Penns Grove/Carneys Point have done their part to make Salem Community College’s campus look a little more beautiful.

The club’s environment committee recently planted mums from Platt Farms on campus. The mums were planted on the Dr. David J. Klinke Green. The Woman’s Club’s environment committee is co-chaired by Marie Boody and Donna Pelura, and they were joined by Betty Chance in planting the new mums on campus.

This isn’t the first beautification project completed by the Woman’s Club, and its work has been recognized by the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs. Penns Grove/Carneys Point earned the first-place award for best all-around work for conservation in New Jersey.

“The College congratulates the Woman’s Club of Penns Grove/Carneys Point on this well-deserved honor and thanks members for their tremendous work at SCC since 2017,” SCC President Michael Gorman said in a press release. “We look forward to working with the club again in 2021.”
