"(NGC Mission Statement here)"
Nordland Garden Club Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 1937
by a group of twenty Marrowstone Island ladies.
It is dedicated to promoting an interest in gardening and associated
subjects such as landscaping, flower design, horticulture and community service
and beautification. We are a member of
National Garden Clubs Inc., Pacific Region, Washington State Federation of
Garden Clubs, Olympic Peninsula District.
Elected officers of the club consist of President, Vice President,
Secretary, Treasurer and three Trustees. The Board of Trustees are responsible
for and have the authority to schedule the use of the hall. Nominations for the next year's officers are
open in March of each year. Yearly dues
The clubhouse and grounds are owned by the Nordland Garden Club at a
tax exempt status. Fund raising activities are necessary to provide financing
for property maintenance, grounds upkeep, insurance, utilities, national and
regional dues, scholarships and more. Wreath sales are our main fund raising
activity. It occurs yearly in November
and is a week long workshop with lunch breaks for soup and bread. It is a festive, fun event and every member
is expected to participate in some way.
Our other main fund raising events are the Plant Sale held every two
years in April and a Craft Fair with local artists and crafts people
participating, held yearly in the first weekend in July.
A Flower Design Show and Horticulture Show are also held every two
years. This is not a fund raising
event. Some other activities that the
club participates in are the Jefferson County Fair horticulture exhibit, Pi
project at Chimicum School, Holiday meals at the Senior Center, maintenance of
the Welcome Triangle, and Sound View Cemetery, scholarships for
graduating seniors from the Island and more.
General meetings of the club are held on the second Wednesday of every
month, September to June with the exception of December in which a Christmas
party is held in place of the monthly meeting.
The business meeting starts promptly at 10 am. Upon completion of the meeting there is a
lunch and social time, followed by a program and guest speaker. The lunch is prepared by 4-5 garden club
members. Every member is expected to
serve on a lunch committee for one monthly meeting.
