After spring reports, Linda and Jim Brunner of the Gulf Coast Shell Club presented an entertaining and educational program on shells that can be found on local beaches and waters. They also displayed their collection of shells.

 Chipley Garden Club was named the 2013 Garden Club of the Year during the FFGC Spring Convention in Fort Myers.

“This is the number one award in FFGC,” said Jane Brewer, past district director. “The award recognizes the Florida garden club that best excels in all of the following categories: membership increase, service to membership, club programs and projects, members attending club, district and state meetings and/or sponsored programs.

“Chipley Garden Club truly shares the joys of gardening with their community and each other. This is an awesome accomplishment not only for Chipley, but for District II because when one wins, we all win.”

The Chipley club also claimed the 2013 Nell Coe (Grow) Ward, the Civic Beautification Award and National Garden Club/Deep South Region third-place Youth Horticulture Award.

Other FFGC awards included Wausau Garden Club members Judy Solger’s two Digital Photography awards, Marianna Garden Club’s Garden Therapy (Geriatric) Award and District II’s Best Newsletter (District) Award.

Pam Cates, President of Vernon Garden Club, discussed a $100,000 highway beautification grant from the Florida Department of Transportation her club was granted in March and the extensive application process involved.
