Spring Flowers & Sunshine
While we are at home, doing our best to stay safe and healthy, be thankful for whom we have in our lives and the blessings that have been bestowed upon us.
Think what this would be like if it were the dead of winter, with snow and wind blowing. We are grateful for the bounty of the spring flowers, and the ability of bring sunshine into our homes, and that we can get outside and work off some of our frustrations gardening.
If you would like to share your work virtually, please send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We've added a Blog!
We would like to share
some happy visions of Spring with our friends!
The Charles County Garden Club took the step to have a meeting online using Zoom since the state is under a "Stay at Home" order. It was our first chance to try the technology to update the membership on what was happening with the Spring Plant Sale (which is rescheduled for June 27th). In the meantime, vegetable seeds that were started months ago will not be able to wait for that date , so we will come up with some way to get plants out to members that want them.
Work is continuing on the Yearbook and the Fall Flower Show (held in conjunction with the Charles County Fair in September). And the website (ccmdgardenclub.org) is up and running. If you have spring pictures to share, please do, by sending to the email at email@example.com
If you are out doing your essential tasks, you might want to drive by the Port Tobacco Courthouse and see our latest project. The grounds are beautiful.
We work to stimulate interest in horticulture and civic improvement throughout the community; to aid in the protection of trees;, shrubs, wildflowers and birds; to encourage conservation and preservation practices in home community and State; to increase the members’ knowledge of and participation in artistic design; to provide ways for members to work together to accomplish goals and objectives in the spirit of fun and camaraderie; and to actively support the Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland, Inc. and the National Garden Clubs, Inc. in their programs.
Our year begins in April after the Annual Meeting as we prepare for the upcoming year of gardening, community work, and fellowship. Our activities include designing community gardens, holding an annual Plant Sale in conjunction with Market Days at the Port Tobacco Courthouse, sponsoring the Southern Maryland portion of the Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage every 3rd year, holding a Flower Show in conjunction with the Charles County Fair in September and hosting a Greens Workshop and Kris Kringle Market at the Fairgrounds the second weekend in December.
