The annual meeting of the Garden Club Federation of Maine was held in Kennebunkport at the Colony Hotel. We had perfect weather and were able to enjoy a tour of 9 amazing gardens in the area. Our garden club was the recipient of 6 awards, one of which was from the National Garden Club, New England Region. These are the awards we received:
GCFM Publicity Press Book Award – First Place, Extra Large Club
GCFM Yearbook Award – Second Place, 100-299 Members
GCFM The Thomas G. Atwell Award, awarded for the best publicity dealing with GCFM objectives
GCFM Civic Development Certificate of Merit, given for outstanding project furthering the interest of conservation
GCFM Club of Distinction Award, for club accomplishments in all areas of garden club activities
National Garden Clubs, Inc. New England Region, 2014 Publicity Press Book Award, Third Place, extra large club
These wonderful commendations certainly would not have been achieved without all of the hard work and dedication from all our club members.
