CCG season starts

The new season is about to begin for members of the Camden Garden Club. During the summer, club officers were busy planning, arranging and getting things ready. They weren't the only ones staying busy. During the summer, members took turns watering the flowers in the planters at the intersections of Broad and DeKalb streets and Broad and Rutledge streets. This is a huge undertaking with the South Carolina heat. Luckily, the club had help from the Liz Gillard with the city of Camden, who alternated days in the watering. The plants are pink bogavilla.
