Call to the 95th annual meeting

June 10th, 2021

"Find Shelter Under the Trees"

The Garden Club of New Jersey will hold its 95th Annual Meeting on Thursday, June 10, 2021. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the meeting will be held virtually. It will be a hybrid Zoom meeting with the installation of officers to take place in-person, at a location to be determined, while all other participants will attend remotely. The Executive Board for the 2021-2023 term will be installed by newly elected NGC President Mary Warshauer. The program will begin at 10:00 am. All necessary business will be conducted, awards and scholarships will be announced, and we will have a very special speaker at the conclusion of our business meeting.

Our speaker is world-renowned arborist, Dr. Margaret Lowman, also known as “Canopy Meg.” Dr. Lowman explores the top of the tree canopy in forests throughout the world to explore and conserve our global forests. She is a unique, exciting, and motivational speaker.

Online registration will be necessary to join, however, the event is free of charge to all GCNJ members. Additional information will be forthcoming shortly.

Please plan to join us virtually on June 10th as we utilize this new format to host the 2021 GCNJ Annual Meeting.

My President’s Theme “Paths to Discovery through Outdoor Learning Centers”

The first year of my presidency has been quite a roller coaster ride as our lives have been impacted by a naturally occurring pandemic that has been raging globally and that shows no signs of abating in the foreseeable future. The Garden Club of New Jersey, Inc.’s member clubs and our GCNJ Board have had to adapt to this new reality. And, as optimistic gardeners, we are meeting the challenge and creating new “Paths to Discovery” by establishing this interactive website that is designed to be informative, inspirational and inclusive, as we reach out to people of all ages and all walks of life.
