Following the business meeting and a buffet lunch on October 25 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Cartersville, GA,
featured speaker Tony Harris presented an interesting and informative talk on "Cherokee Garden, Flower Trail of Tears".
Along with Susan Roof (CGC evening group - not pictured), who is on the Laurel District Board, eight members of our morning group attended the meeting.

Cumming Garden Club acted as sponsor for Alec Kraby to attend this summer camp in July 2017. His mother reported that he had a great time . . . he went fishing, searched for dragonfly nymphs, studied water ecosystems, observed the stars with high powered telescopes and made friends from all over the state.
Photo is of Alec the day he came back from camp. He proudly displays for his little sister the flower arrangement and container garden he made at camp.
It's All About The B's was the theme of the 2017 convention held from April 18 through April 20 at Callaway Gardens Lodge and Spa. More than 300 people attended the convention, including five members of Cumming Garden Club's morning group. A lecture on the three B's (Birds, Bees and Butterflies) was held on Tuesday, with a reception and dinner that evening. Enjoying the dinner were Shirley Thomas, Ruth Sutton, Arthur Morgan and Diane Morgan (photo on left). Heidi Stuckman (photo on right) and Linda Hardie visited the Little White House, with its newly installed pollinator garden (planted by the Redbud District).
