The Tybee Island Garden Club is celebrating 50 years on the island. The club was founded on February 8, 1960 and joined the Garden Club of Georgia in 1961. Several exciting events are being planned for this year. Our annual plant swap and sale will be held on Saturday, March 6 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 pm at the Memorial Park Pavilion. Now is a good time to be thinking about digging up some of your extra plants to swap them for something new. Plants and other gardening items will also be available for sale.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 17. The Tybee Island Garden Club will be placing a Blue Star Memorial Marker on Tybee that day. The Blue Star Memorial Program is a program of the National Garden Club that honors service men and women. Following the dedication of the marker will be a reception to celebrate the Tybee Island Garden Club’s 50th anniversary.
The Tybee Island Garden Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month (except June, July and August) at the Guard House at 10:00 a.m. The next meeting will be February 17. For more information contact Beth Smith at email@example.com. Next meeting, Feb. 17, 10am, at the Tybee Guard House.
UPDATE on Tybee’s New “Community Garden”
