36 members and 1 guest attended our year end celebration and installation of officers. It was a lovely evening of friendship and fellowship.  Congratulations to the new officers and thank you for stepping up to lead Norcross Garden Club for the next two years.  A sincere Thank You to the officers and board members who have led the club over the past two years.  Many projects were accomplished.

Thank you from Trudy Rudert for Fulton Federal Luncheon

Thank you to the Norcross Garden Club team which did so many wonderful things to make the Fulton Federation of Garden Clubs Award Luncheon so successful!

Cottage Garden Care May-August

Please note that we have a summer care schedule for the cottage garden.  Mark these days on your calendar. There are three days of the week and times of day to choose from.  We’re hoping this will encourage members to pick a day and time that works with your schedule.  If you can’t make it to a specific care day, you are most welcome to stop by anytime it’s convenient for you to pick up debris and pull a few weeds. Invite a friend or family member to join you!  If you have any questions, please text Pam Cammarata (770-314-9541)
