If you have not been to WesterFlora, you need to mark July 22, 2018 on your calendar. The free garden tour, which began in 1992, came in first place at the Garden Club of Ohio convention June 8th.
The Westerville Garden Club, sponsor of WesterFlora, was awarded Outstanding Extra Large Club in addition to winning many first, second and National awards, according to Garden Club publicity chair Linda Laine.
The Westerville Garden Club’s first place honors recognized its work on the Blue Star Memorial and surrounding landscaping at Hanby Park, 115 E. Park St, as well as the landscaping at First Responder’s Park, 374 W. Main St, and the information pamphlet about the Hanby House Kitchen Garden, 160 W. Main St, it maintains.
Second Place honors included Best Small Standard Flower Show, Decoration of a Historic Building (Hanby House), Garden Club Youth Award, National Garden Week Award and Website.
Our local club also was recognized by National Garden Clubs, Inc. as the Overall Winner for the Blue Star Memorial Highway Marker and received a Certificate of Merit for its club newsletter The Weakly Weeder, among several other honors and awards.
Be sure to visit the Westerville Garden Club’s website and learn more about this group adds beauty to our community. Congratulations!
