(in conjunction with the Stuart/Martin County Chamber Home and Garden
Location: Martin County Fairgrounds, 2616 SE Dixie Highway, Stuart, Florida
Once again, I wish to take a moment to thank our officers, committee chairpersons and everyone who supported and participated in all our projects during this past Garden Club year. It is only through your support and positive attitude that we accomplished many FFGC goals this year, including Penny Pines, the Water and Land Constitutional Amendment Petition and our Youth Arbor Day Celebrations. The income from our monthly Opportunity Drawings / Ways & Means Table was phenomenal, enabling us to pay all our Operating Expenses without raising membership dues. We had a terrific Secret Gardens Tour, enabling Garden Club to give Wekiva Camperships and scholarships to three deserving high school students in Martin County. Garden Club of Stuart received 3 awards at the recent FFGC Convention in Sarasota for projects submitted for consideration and deemed outstanding!! Yes, thanks to such great member participation, we have had a very good Garden Club year!!!
It is also very rewarding to realize our induction of seventeen new members who are eager to join with us in our projects, make new friends and learn more about gardening in South Florida. This newsletter highlights our annual luncheon where we all join together to recognize our many and varied accomplishments during the year. It is also a wonderful time when members are individually recognized for their quiet behind the scenes contribution to Garden Club.
Again, many thanks and kudos to all of you for your support and participation in Garden Club this year. Have a great summer, be safe and stay healthy. I look forward to seeing you all again in the fall. Thank you all for your support this year!!!
Donna J. Berger, President
