Five Midcoast garden clubs to converge on Camden
Mar 29, 2011 Share
CAMDEN — On Monday, May 2, Camden Garden Club will host the annual luncheon for the Medomak District of the Garden Club Federation of Maine which will be held at Point Lookout in Northport. The Maine state organization, with seven districts — all of them named for rivers running through them — is a part of the New England Region of the National Garden Club. The Medomak District includes Bath, Boothbay Region, Camden, Wiscasset, and Topsham.
The five clubs in the district take turns hosting this annual event and 2011 is Camden’s turn. The luncheon is a chance for members and their guests to gather to celebrate the accomplishments of the past year and to hear an excellent speaker who can be counted on to encourage gardeners to dream big dreams. This is also an excellent way for members of garden clubs who are not affiliated with the state organization to see why they might like to bring their club into this fellowship.
The speaker this year is Catharine Felton of Wenham, Mass., who is currently the Horticulture Chairman for the National Garden Clubs, Inc., and has a long list of credentials and accomplishments in seemingly every aspect of gardening. Her topic for this luncheon will be “Garden Renewal – New Hope for Old Bones.”
Garden Club members and their guests should register by April 15 by contacting Judith Tarbox at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 236-7468. The cost is $30 for members and $35 for non members.
