Garden club elects officers

TICONDEROGA - The Carillon Garden Club officers met recently to plan programs and events for the new club year.

Regular business and informative meetings are held on the third Thursday March through December at the Hague Community Center, Rte. 8 in Hague. Special activities, trips and workshops are also scheduled throughout the year.

The first meeting of the club year will be on March 17.

The Carillon Garden Club was founded in 1974 and now has 46 members. The objectives of the club are to promote interest in gardening, aid in the protection and conservation of natural resources, protect civic beauty, and to study and advance the fine arts of gardening, landscape design, floral design and horticulture. The club is a 501 (c) (3) organization and is affiliated with the National Garden Clubs, Inc, the Federated Garden Clubs of NY State and District IV of the FGCNYS.

Each year the Carillon Garden Club promotes civic beauty by planting flower boxes at the adult homes in Ticonderoga and maintaining entryway gardens into Ticonderoga and Hague.

New members are encouraged to join and share in the projects, the informative meetings and fellowship with other gardeners.
