The Chippewa Garden Club (CGC) welcomes you to our 70th year! We have a wonderful 2019 planned –full of educational programs and civic projects.
On August 18, 2019, Chippewa Garden Club will be having a “flea market” in conjunction with the Brecksville Historical Association’s Corn Roast. We will be selling gently used holiday decorations at a “Christmas in August” event. See details here.
Our next membership meeting is August 27, 2019. Amy Roskilly from the Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District will be presenting: “Shrinking Your Lawn” at 7:00 p.m. We meet at the Brecksville Human Services Building.
For 2019 our President has chosen a theme of “Celebrating our 70th Anniversary”. Seventy years ago (May 19, 1949) 15 young women met to form a garden club. They wanted to share their love of gardening, to study the fine art of flower design, to aid in the protection of native plants and wildlife, and to encourage civic betterment. Thus, the Chippewa Garden Club was born. Several decades later, fostering educational opportunities was added to the mission statement. Today, these goals and objectives remain the reason for our existence.
Anniversaries are great causes for celebration. And as we celebrate our platinum anniversary we recall all our civic projects, our participation in community, environmental, and educational events, our personal growth in the arts and sciences of gardening and floral design.
