Club Purpose and Objectives:
That we have the love of flowers and gardens in our hearts.
That we stimulate knowledge and encourage civic pride.
That we be willing to put forth energy, enthusiasm and patience into the effort and be worthy of the privileges and
responsibilities that garden work entails.
That we protect the native birds, plants, trees and animal life so that our community, state and nation will reflect beauty and give joy to all that behold them.
To stimulate the love of gardening and flower arranging, encourage home and community beautification, promote better horticultural practices and encourage all forms of conservation.
