Expressions, Engagement Calendar
Each year, GCG publishes a calendar which showcases floral designs created by very talented members throughout the state. From the applications received, a panel of Master Judges select the designs to be included in the calendar and determine who will be the "Calendar Arranger of the Year" and runner-up. Revenue raised from the sale of these calendars funds scholarships for deserving students attending Georgia colleges or universities and majoring in garden related fields. The desk size calendar or purse size are priced at $8.00 and can be ordered with this form. Each District has a Calendar Marketing Chairman who promotes sales, takes orders and distributes the calendars at the Fall District Meetings.
The official publication of the Garden Club of Georgia serves as the liaison between club members, the state, regional and national organizations. It is published quarterly and mailed to all club members. Read more >
