The Garden Club's exhibit at the AG FAIR, designed by Mary Lou Perry (West Tisbury VP), took FIRST PLACE in the category of Adult Island & Special Exhibits! Kudos to Mary Lou for creating this stunning tableau and to Tracie for making it all come together seamlessly, and to the many members who contributed artifacts. The exhibit is just inside the entrance to the hall on the right. Click on photo to see timeline. >>
A message from Mary Lou Perry:
"I would like to thank everyone who helped make our arrangement possible. Without all of you we would have had an empty table. It was a real team effort - Coordinator, Arranger and Contributors. This was a first for the Garden Club. In the past, it has always been a single arranger. What a difference a TEAM makes! And we pulled off in ONE week!……. THANK YOU, TEAM!"
At our ANNUAL MEETING on August 18th, our new officers were elected; they will take office in January. CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU!!
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT:
The Island is our garden (especially in late AUGUST)!
The Martha's Vineyard Garden Club, established in 1924, is an island-wide community organization of almost two hundred members (including many seasonal residents), who share a passion for gardening, conservation, and maintaining our unique environment.
We are an active group. Our monthly meetings are both educational and social; our programs are varied and designed to meet personal and community needs. New members and guests are always welcome.
- DiAnn Ray, President
