2019 has been a good year for the Garden Club
–a wide and varied number of speakers
-supported by great snacks and refreshments!
-thank you to all who made the speakers, refreshments and meetings, This is truly the backbone of our club.
-a big huge thank you to all of our committee chairs who made it all possible!
We also had some great successes:
-A lovely trip to Stone Barns at the Rockefeller Preserve and Untermyer Gardens
-our dedication to the memory of Alice Poor and her wishes is something that continues to guide the activities and locations we choose to pursue
-we had two successful garden sales at Copia and Gossets
-the Alice Poor Garden redesigned last year continues to be a lovely addition to Onatru Farm, with thanks to Timi and Susie for their hard work and fantastic organizational skills to make it happen.
-GR is celebrating 14 years of beauty under the stewardship and tireless dedication of George and his committee. This year the program was covered not just locally but in a national magazine- Country Home and Garden.
So what to look forward to in 2020:
-A fantastic display of golds, yellows and whites in the GR show. Here’s hoping the freeze and thaw of the spring is kind to our delicate daffodils.
-The community garden should be completed.
-We will be hosting a grand-opening of the FriendshipFarden in June, we hope.
-A beautiful display of talent and design across town in all of our triangles
-More outings and speakers – we have some great talks and surprises already lined up!
