Federated Garden Clubs of CT Awards 2019 

Lucille Schavoir Award - 2019

Considered the highest award in the state presented to a Garden Club, we were honored to receive the Lucille Schavoir Award, a silver bowl, for outstanding work during the year. This included a major project to install a butterfly garden at Volunteer Park and involved working with the Berlin Parks and Recreation, a local nursery and 6 students from Upbeat. The club is commended for bringing together many contributors and turning unused land into a beautiful way station for pollinators.

Certificate of Individual Achievement was awarded to 3 club members: Bonnie M, Mary Ann M and Barbara S. They are recognized for their work planting and maintaining garden beds in patriotic colors of red, white and blue at the Worthington Ridge Soldiers Memorial.
