A special couple from Little Neck was honored recently at the Rose Gala in Flushing, sponsored by the Queens Botanical Garden.
David and Silvia Siegel were honored for their 50 years of membership at the garden. According to QBG Executive Director Susan Lacerte, at the time the World’s Fair was being built, the couple heard the city was giving land for a botanical garden in Flushing and they said to themselves, “The Bronx has a garden, Brooklyn has a garden. Queens has a new one — and we are going to join.” And they have been members ever since.
They are avid gardeners and travel the world to visit garden sites.
