The Chippewa Garden Club (CGC) welcomes you to our 70th year! We have a wonderful 2019 planned –full of educational programs and civic projects.
Our next Membership Meeting will be March 26, 2019, 7:00 p.m. at the Brecksville Human Services Bldg.
2019 is a Flower Show year….and that means we’ll be spending lots of time preparing for the event (July 13-14). At our March Membership Meeting we’ll be learning about several new (for us) classes where we can exhibit our horticulture. These are collectively called Botanical Arts. Come learn with us as we try new ways to grow, show, and win blue-ribbon winners.
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.
