The Sea Girt Lighthouse
The Holly Club takes special pride in our efforts to beautify the historic Sea Girt Lighthouse. Built in 1896, the Sea Girt Lighthouse was functioning until WWII, when it was shut down due to fear of U-boats. Now open to the public from April-November, the Holly Club creates the fresh flower arrangements placed in the Lighthouse Library for Sunday tours. Members also care for the gardens of the Lighthouse - planting, watering, and weeding. Each December, the Holly Club takes pride and enjoyment in decorating the interior of the Lighthouse for the holidays.
The Holly Club also coordinates seasonal planters throughout town.
Each summer, the Holly Club members coordinate with the Sea Girt Department of Public Works to create the beautiful planters displayed along Sea Girt's boardwalk at the entrance to each beach. Members choose the flowers, fill the planters and maintain them during the season.
Each month, the Club visits Preferred Care of Wall to assist residents in making flower arrangements. These arrangements are then displayed in the dining room to be enjoyed by all.
The Holly Club of Sea Girt is proud to award two scholarships to deserving high school graduates who plan to study horticulture.
To fund our projects, the Holly Club undertakes a variety of fundraising efforts. These efforts have included an annual luncheon, our popular Sea Girt beach badge raffle and our Color the Shore coloring book featuring iconic scenes of Sea Girt, Spring Lake and Manasquan. At every meeting, our members explore new and interesting ways to help raise funds for the club.
