April 18-20, 2023, Garden Club of Georgia Convention at Stone Mountain Evergreen Resort

Message from Barbara Bourque, Convention Chairman:  Dogwood District is hosting the GCG Convention! We want everyone to attend this "Magical" celebration. Fantastic Speakers at the afternoon workshops and meals, wonderful vendors for your shopping pleasure, great room rates at the hotel, delightful camaraderie with garden club friends. Everyone pays their own way for hotel and meals, but it still takes mega-bucks to put on a convention:  Audio Visual is a major cost, speaker fees/meals, printing, tickets, signage, floral designs, etc.  Therefore, we need everyone's help financially and volunteer-wise. Registration forms for Convention will be published in the December Garden Gateways magazine and distributed via email through the listserv.

Please review the attached documents:

  • Volunteer sign-up sheet-All garden club members are invited to volunteer at convention.
  • Sponsorship Form with descriptions of tiers-please pass on to any individuals or companies that may be interested in a sponsorship.
  • Designers need driftwood for table decorations. Please see specs on the attached sheet.
