The Port St. Joe Garden Club kicked off its new year with a "Meet and Mingle" last Thursday night. The night was a chance to renew old friendships, meet new members and talk to those interested in joining the Club.

The coming year will be filled with programs pertaining to gardening and conservation, field trips, workshops and fundraising, community outreach, renovating our facility with grant funding generously provided by the Jessie Ball duPond Fund, and hosting the District II meeting for the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs in May. If you were unable to attend Thursday night's "Meet and Mingle" but are interested in learning more about the Club please email an inquiry to Our first meeting is Thursday, Sept. 13 at 216 8th Street.
