National Garden Club's President's Theme: "PLANT AMERICA"  Nancy Hargroves, 2017-2019


This is a picture of a small section of a rug lining the corridors of NGC headquarters in St. Louis, MO. It is centrally located at one end of this U-shaped carpet that runs about 150 feet and it is a very well traveled section of the carpet. Every state has its logo and state flower shown on this beautiful carpet.

Sue Hinkel

During the summer Sue Hinkel was asked to install the new officers of Four Sasons Garden Club in Newport, VT. In addition, and unbeknownst to the member, Lois Young was awarded the Golden Trowel Award for her many years of FSGC membership, active participation, willingness to take part, and joyful attitude. This award is one that can be awarded to any member of your club for similar reasons.

One of Granite Center's most active members, Christine Rousseau, was also awarded the Golden Trowel Award from her club last year.
