Beautification Award

Brewster Garden Club’s Beautification Award has been given annually for the last 20 years to a
Brewster business or individual whose garden is in a location which can be viewed and
appreciated by the general public.  The purpose of the award is to encourage residents and
businesses to keep Brewster’s highways and byways flowering and beautiful for all to enjoy.
