On Tuesday, April 17, 1968, 29 women met to form the Garden Club of Chatham. From the start the Club made the town bloom. Our focus has been on the many Beautification Projects that we've planted and maintained throughout the town. In 2000, the Chatham Chamber of Commerce awarded its first Citizen of the Year award to our Club.
Over the years, we have labeled trees in Chase Park, given away tree seedlings on Arbor Day, helped fund the Chatham Friends of Trees, embarked on an ambitious project: the Kousa Dogwood Tree Beautification Program, sponsored home and garden tours that supported our scholarship fund, and produced a cookbook "Tea by the Sea." Throughout it all, we have worked hard and had lots of fun.
We meet on the third Tuesday, September through June, at the Chatham Community Center, 702 Main Street. Friendship and Refreshments at 12:30 P.M. are followed by a business meeting and program at 1:00 P.M. Meeting cancellations are announced on radio station WQRC-FM and WFCC-FM. If schools are closed, the club meeting is cancelled.
Membership in the Chatham Garden Club is open to residents of the area who have an interest in gardening. Those interested may come as a guest to a regularly scheduled meeting, Dues for active members are $35, payable in April, May or June. Checks made out to the Chatham Garden Club can be mailed to the Treasurer, at Chatham Garden Club, P.O. Box 392, Chatham, MA, 02633 or brought to the next club meeting.
