The following sentiment was read in the Maine House of Representatives on March 5, 2015:
“(5-19) the Camden Garden Club, in Camden, which is 100 years old on March 4, 2015. The oldest garden club in the State, dedicated to civic improvement, the Camden Garden Club has implemented many projects and programs that have beautified Camden and the Midcoast area since 1934, hanging the famous red geranium baskets upon the lampposts of the town, leading the fight against Dutch Elm disease in the 1950’s and planting 1,600 street side trees, which have earned Camden the Tree City USA designation. We extend to the Camden Garden Club our appreciation for the beauty it has brought to the State and our best wishes on this special occasion.”
The sentiment was presented by District 12 Representative Joan Welsh and co-sponsored by Senator David Miramant from District 92. In attendance were Camden Garden Club President, Elizabeth Moran and members Molly Foster, Ann Vanosdol, Judith Tarbox, Sandy Terry and Ronnie Beason.
