The Durham Council of Garden Clubs was founded in 1929 in federation with the National Garden Club and The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc.
The Council served more than eight decades as the umbrella group for garden clubs and junior garden clubs in Durham, NC. Today, Durham Garden Clubs continue the same mission of philanthropic projects of preservation, conservation, education and beautification under District 9 of the Garden Clubs of NC.
This April 14th and 15th were in 1949, just 60 years ago this coming month. I thought I could take some photos from the old musty scrapbooks we have and share some each month. Please let me know your thoughts on this. Marcia
Heritage hosted a Valentines Tea at Spring Arbor for the residents. Herbal tea, and sandwiches were provided as well as "Heritage" hats from the closets of our mothers. The group sang some great spiritual songs as well as many from the swing era and fun was had by all including the staff.
It is March and spring will come some day but with the snow now is the time for the blog to begin. This will be the place where the dates of interest and activities will be posted and we hope you will share the photos of your activities for the rest of the 13 clubs. This is where you can acknowledge a member who has given, share your fun, ask questions about what is going on and invite others of the Council to your meetings and events. You just e-mail Marcia at jloudonatncdotrrdotcom. As this blog is open to the world I will not print any last names or e-mails but refer you to the council yearbook for the details. I will refer to someone as EX: Marcia-Heritage or Janet-Crosadaile. When new information is posted to the blog the presidents of each club will be e-mailed. Please tell your membership about the blog. There will be a place to comment on each post.
