The Garden Club meets on the third Thursday of each month from September to April.
Our monthly General Meetings include the ongoing business of the Club followed by a guest speaker and a “Show and Tell”. The meetings, followed by a light lunch, are casual gatherings enjoyed by those who are interested in a broad variety of horticultural topics.
