Become a Subscribing Member by Oct. 1st.
Dear Garden Club Members,
We are always encouraging clubs to add more members. We need to reach our goal of 10,000 before Oct. 1st so we can continue to receive 2 NGC scholarships for our Georgia students.
One way of doing this is by having subscribing members— people who do not belong to a regular garden club, but who wish to support our work and mission. For a$25 annual membership fee (tax deductible) a person can become a Subscribing Member— receive Garden Gateways and email communication if they wish.
Won’t you please consider making your daughter, spouse, cousin, neighbor or friend a sub-scribing member? Any club who sponsors at least 3 subscribing members will get credit for it on the Club President’s Annual Report. Please complete the form and mail it with your check. Do it today. Thank you.
The club was officially recognized in 1958, however, a recent discovery of a journal found in an attic in town has revealed a club started as early as 1931. Imagine the excitement.
What's been identified thus far:
Our historical records from the Jackson family date back to 1931. February 19, 1931 a group gathered at the Presbyterian Church to organize the garden club. Their first official garden club meeting was March 19, 1931. One year later, in an article dated March 27, 1932, Mrs. B.F. Summerour, president, read a letter from the Garden Club of Georgia welcoming the club to membership.
