“As we worked to bring the town back after both storms, Somers Gardens has been closed since the devastation from Tropical Storm Fay. We encourage all of our community to come out with their gardening tools and assist with bringing our well known Gardens back to an open state.

“The elected Members would like to take this opportunity to thanks our staff for their tremendous work after both storms to ensure our town was cleaned and have been working tirelessly to ensure our town will be ready for the upcoming Christmas Season.
