They’re called “random sightings of beauty,” and the idea is to drive around looking for wonderful displays of horticulture.
The searches are conducted by members of the Civic Beautification Committee of the Navesink Garden Club, who travel throughout 12 towns in the greater Red Bank area taking pictures of yards with attractive, well-maintained landscaping and colorful flowers visible to the public.
On Monday night, at the Red Bank Council’s bimonthly meeting, officers of the club doled out awards to owners of three borough residences for their displays. They were:
Ruben Gomez, of 83 West Sunset Avenue
Anne Davis, of 153 East Front Street
J.P. Nicholaides & Ed Zipprich, of 229 River Road
