Seabrook Island Garden Club concludes this season with a celebration of its 30th Anniversary at 12 noon on May 11 at the Island House.
The first official meeting of the Garden Club was held in 1988. The club was originally an informal gathering of creative women who had a mutual interest in gardening as well as in preserving the intrinsic beauty of the Island. They were soon confronted with the damaging winds and rain of Hurricane Hugo. In the aftermath of the hurricane the club members were instrumental in promoting ideas that helped restore the natural balance of Seabrook. The membership increased and programs including educational lectures, workshops, trips, and social events soon blossomed.
The Garden Club that began with just 14 members, now boasts over 60 active members. The meetings are held the second Friday of each month (September through May). The club continues to offer a variety of timely and relevant agendas including presentations by gardening experts and club members sharing their personal stories, expertise and experiences, to philanthropic activities. The club is especially proud of its annual gift to a student pursuing an interest in the study of horticulture. Today the SIGC remains committed to the pursuit and sharing of ideas, towards the beautification and enhancement of our homes and natural environment.
This year’s SIGC Spring Luncheon is scheduled on Friday, May 11, 2018. Come celebrate 30 years of excitement, education and camaraderie. A three course lunch will be served at the Island House at 12:00 PM. A booklet including the development and history of the SIGC will be distributed at the luncheon. The cost is $27.00, and you can secure your reservation by contacting Judy Hubbard or simply drop off your check payable to the Seabrook Island Garden Club at Judy’s house, 3033 Marsh Gate Drive, Seabrook Island, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: 843-768-4695.
