The Dogwood Garden Club of Americus observed Arbor Day 2012 by planting a dogwood tree on the grounds of the Sumter County Agriculture Center. The tree was planted in memory of Deborah Allen, a Dogwood Club member and officer. Guests at the ceremony were Sumter County Commissioner, Randy Howard, Gene Allen, and County Agent Bill Starr.

Members of the Dogwood Garden Club continue their partnership in 2012 with Sumter County Elementary School with discussion, video presentation, and hands-on creation of bird feeders and natural habitat creations. Two years ago, these community-active garden club members renovated and restored the campus greenhouse and beautified the environmental garden and pond site.

In April 2011, members of Early Bloomers GC of Americus did a "spring cleaning" of the Sumter Humane Society flower beds: raking, mulching and pruning, to spruce up the entrance and sides of the building. Early Bloomers also purchased a large conifer to plant in the front yard, to be used as a live Christmas tree, with an ornament displayed for every pet housed at the Society that year.
