Mrs. Peggy Glover, Mrs. Brenda Holder and Mrs. Norma McKinney making plans for a new year of Garden Club meetings. The Pine Needle Garden Club Members have begun preparations for the new year of meetings. The Garden Club of Georgia spon­sored a leadership workshop and a bench dedication for the outgoing president, Martha Price, at the State Headquarters in Athens.

The Azalea District of Garden Clubs sponsored an awards work­shop in Union Point, Georgia, their annual Executive Board Meeting in Washington, Georgia, and, finally, The Augusta Garden Council held its kick-off meeting at Aldersgate Methodist Church in Augusta, Geor­gia.

So, as you can see, our PNGC of Lincolnton has been really busy traveling, but we have learned so much from the terrific speakers and presenters at each and every meet­ing.

Our Pine Needle Garden Club will hold its first meeting on Monday, September 18, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the conference room of the Lincoln County Library, Humphrey Street entrance. The National Garden Club’s purpose this year is ‘Plant America!’ We plan to plant a tree in a public place to honor that pur­pose.

The Garden Club of Georgia’s purpose this year is ‘Celebrate 90 Years of Garden Clubs Organiza­tion in 1891 Right Here in Athens, Georgia.’ They are sponsoring a Plant Our State Parks Yellow to commemorate garden clubs in Geor­gia. Our PNGC of Lincolnton has adopted Elijah Clark State Park and will be planting Daffodil bulbs there with the help of Ranger Harry Hafer and his staff. Plus, we have a really wonderful year of fun programs and informative sharing of ideas.

Mark your calendars and come join us September 18th, 7 p.m., Lincoln County Library.
