The 95th Annual Meeting, Thursday, May 10th 2018
took place at the Hathaway House in McGraw, NY.
Outstanding food, exceptional speakers, our very favorite venue, and of course convivial district members, all came together to make for an outstanding event.
These photos tell the story.
Let us all thank Ed Mohring from the Endwell Garden Club. He furnished all the photos!
Thank you, Ed!
Speaking of awards, Here's the Endwell GC being recognized for contributing the most money to
World Gardening from our district.
Josh Cerra, our morning speaker, seen here with our Director, Tony Antes, and Molly Del Giacco, gave a well-received presentation on "Climate-Adaptive Designs" for environmentally-friendly gardening.
After Josh's presentation, we all adjourned to the dining room to partake of the most delicious and well-presented gastronomical delights.

The Baldwinsville Garden Club held a 60th Anniversary Tea Party at the Shacksboro Museum on Sunday, 24 June 2018. It was open to the public.
There was live music by a group of students from the Baker High School Band, free
refreshments and a new photo display in the museum of the Garden Club’s 60 years.
The display will be in place for about a month.
It was a dry day until about mid-afternoon and then some sprinkles which are well overdue.
As you can easily see, there are some very talented floral arrangers in their club.
Here are some of the attendees.
