Garden club to mark 50 years
Jackie West (l-r), Melissa Beck (chairperson), Shirley Grammer, and Rosemary McEnery finalize plans to celebrate the La Vernia Garden Club’s 50th anniversary with a luncheon Thursday, March 20.
The La Vernia Garden Club will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year. A special luncheon is scheduled for Thursday, March 20, in the La Vernia High School Culinary Department.
The garden club was organized in March 1964 by the former Gail Shriber of La Vernia, who also was a member of the Wilson County Historical Survey Committee in the 1960s. She kept a scrapbook of newspaper articles about the activities of the garden club, which has been a tremendous help in compiling the early history of the club.
