Camden Garden Club welcomes new members
Camden — Four new members of the Camden Garden Club attended a welcome coffee in June to meet the club officers and committee chairmen at the home of membership chair Kris Mikkelsen in Camden.
Stephanie Mathews, Barb Grossbaum, Linda Sink and Christie Richards recently joined the club and attended the event. Since the welcome coffee, three more members have also joined. They are Hope Angier, Donna Barbieri, and Pat Skaling.
With about 140 members, the Camden Garden Club is in its 99th year of cultivating the art of gardening, developing and preserving beauty in and around Camden — like the trademark hanging baskets on lamp posts in summer and lighted wreaths in winter — and promoting civic improvements and conservation of natural resources.
These good works are funded with the proceeds from the Annual House and Garden Tour, in its 67th year. Next year the Garden Club’s Centennial Year tour will be Thursday, July 16 and will feature houses often seen during the club’s first years. New this December, a historic Camden house will be open for a Candlelight Christmas on Christmas by the Sea weekend, Dec. 5 -7.
