District 9 Presidents Meet in Durham for Annual Meeting
The Presidents Meeting of the District 9 of The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. met Thursday with over 30 District members representing 16 garden clubs in attendance.
The meeting was hosted by the Durham Council of Garden Clubs and was held at the historic John Sprunt Hill House. Meeting tables and the dining area were brightened by several floral arrangements created by State Secretary Pat Cashwell and Vice District 9 Director Catherine Phelps, both ladies hold national credentials as flower show judges. Gourmet tea refreshments were provided by Robin Marin of Town & Country Garden Club.
District 9 Director Marcia Loudon led the agenda and distributed an administrative binder to each club president or club representative. She presented critical dates, details, forms, etc. within the binders she created, emphasizing that all of the information can also be sourced on the GCNC website (gardenclubofnc.org) of which she is editor.
Past District 9 Director Andrea Lewis took a minute to promote the 2018 GCNC Annual Meeting, to be held April 15-17, 2018, in Chapel Hill, NC. “Orange You Glad It’s Spring?” is the theme created by the Orange County Council of Garden Clubs hosting the event.
