Members of the Carrollton Garden Club are planning several activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the club’s forming.
The club is planning a 50th anniversary luncheon April 17 at the Ashton House Museum with a program by Sally Whiston called “Victorian Bignettes.” During the event, club members plan to learn about the language of flowers during the Victorian era.
A garage plant sale is planned for June 6 at the home of member Pat Roudebush on 4th St. NE, Carrollton, and the group’s annual plant sale fundraiser will be held later in the month.
“This is an exciting time for our club,” said President Linda Moreland. “Fifty years is a long time for a club to be in existence and helping our community. We are proud to be able to help beautify the village each year.”
The club plants flowers at the McCook House, Carrollton Village Safety Center and Kiddle Land Park each spring and provides flowers to the Carrollton High School fall and winter homecoming king, queen and court members as well as for the Carroll County Fair king, queen and court members.
They also hang wreaths on street signs throughout the village during the Christmas holiday season and conduct an annual banquet and auction and donate proceeds to the Carroll County Community Christmas program.
For information or to join the organization, contact any of the club officers. They incude Linda Moreland, president; Kelley Bryan, vice president; Pam Miller, treasurer; and Sharon Bellamy, secretary.
