This club has held a  horticulture show every year since its inception (1947).
The members enter and display the best examples of the fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers grown in their gardens over the summer.  It has been a colorful and abundant exhibit in the past and promises to be an exciting one this year with the addition of  the Designs.
With titles like  “Follow the Sun”, “A Day in the Garden”, “Herbal
Delights”, “Green Thumbs” and “A Country Garden” in the Horticulture Division (eligible for Best-in-Show Award) and “Razzle Dazzle”,  ”Graceful Rhythm”, “Jazz it up” and “Some Like it Hot” in the Design Division, (also eligible for a Best-in-Show Award) a bountiful and colorful show is assured.  Members have garnered Blue Ribbons in local and State Competitions.   21 members of the club will display their Meyer Lemon Tree in a Challenge Class. The plants were distributed in March 2014 as fledgling 12″ tall specimen, it
will be very interesting to see how tall they have grown and how many lemons are on the branches.
