On September 8th, the ideas were flowing at the Glastonbury Riverfront Community Center where garden club members from the northeast area of the state were joined by Federation board members to first review Federation and National Garden Club resources available to help achieve club goals.
This presentation was followed by two roundtable sessions, with participants seated by the topics they had preregistered to discuss. The range of topics assigned to various tables included membership, programs, projects, fundraising, club management and the awards process.
Based on the positive feedback from participants, we look forward to offering this opportunity to other regions of the state. In the meantime, we would like to thank all who attended and shared their ideas. Participating clubs included:
