The Camden Garden Club will hold its final meeting of this season on Monday at the home of Liza and Steve Van Horn. There will be no program, but members will be able to tour the formal gardens. Steve will be on hand to explain how they designed and executed the lay out and flow of their exquisite garden.
All through the year, members have been bringing in arrangements and specimens to be judged. This month’s suggested theme is “The Lusty Month of May” using a basket container. The judges will be Inis Gibbs, chairman; Darlene Maxwell; and Margaret Myers. The club awards will be presented for The Helen Phelps Bowl, which is awarded to the member who accumulated the most points for horticulture and arrangement entries. The President’s Award will be presented by club President Wendy Ziemke, to the member whose work exceeds normal club duties and responsibilities by exemplifying the love of gardening, cooperation, and enthusiastic participation in club activities.
Members will also sign up for the coming years’ projects that they would be interested in working on and volunteering for hostess and judging duties. Last month, the club earned a number of awards from The West Sandhills District for its Habitat for Humanity Landscaping project, The Civic Beautification Award for its work in downtown Camden, and first place for the President’s Report and for its Yearbook.
After the awards and touring the gardens, Lucy Shaw, hostess chairman; Diana Wenman; and Susan Prettyman will serve light refreshments.
