Crossroads Garden Club Holds First Meeting
The Crossroads Garden Club held its charter meeting last Tuesday night, February 28, 2012. We had eleven garden enthusiasts who joined and we have decided to have an open membership that will meet on the fourth Monday of each month. The next meeting will be at 3072 Highway 154, Newnan, on March 26th at 7:00 pm and we are very excited to announce that Charlotte Nelson, whose topic will be Straw Bale Gardening, is our March 26th speaker.
Officers elected at the first meeting are Sam Merrill, Chairman of the Bylaws Committee; Wilma Smith, Secretary/Treasurer; Deberah Williams, President and Mike Christie, Vice President. Business for the next meeting will include voting on Bylaws and Selecting a Program and Planning Committee.
We hope to plan some field trips to local gardens and invite speakers on a wide range of gardening topics. Our new members ranged from the experienced to the novice and we all agreed that it was the perfect mix to make for an interesting garden club. Membership in the Georgia and National Garden Clubs is also included with our local Crossroads Garden Membership. We are also accepting online memberships. For information, email this address.
