Community service, an integral part of the club's mission, is enthusiastically provided by members. The desire to serve is a major motivation for joining Falmouth Garden Club. Members place a wreath at the annual Veterans' Day celebration. Two floral baskets are placed at the annual Memorial Day Celebration.
The Club also maintains the Bus Station Window Boxes, the planters at the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce, the Cupola Garden in front of Mullen Hall Elementary School, decorates trays for Meals on Wheels trays, and provides programs for residents of Royal Falmouth Nursing Center.
