The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut 2016 Awards


We should all be very proud! 
Our club garnered many awards
at this year's Awards Luncheon:


  •   Barbara O’Connor was awarded the Mary Freng Memorial Bowl for her “ innumerable contributions to horticultural education and excellence”.

  •   “JOY!” our June flower show, chaired by Judy Beers, was awarded the Mary Loncin Flower Show Award – a pewter bowl for the highest scoring Standard Flower Show in the State.

  •   A Special Certificate given for unusual projects which do not fit under any category was awarded for the branding of the flower show evidenced by the coordination of all print materials to support the theme, accomplished by Jane Sharpe and her committee.

  •   The flower show also received Citations in these three important categories: Schedule, Design, and Public Relations & Communications plus a Certificate of Appreciation for Josie Schmidt’s power point program on indoor air pollutants."

  •   Barbara McCann’s yearbook received a First Place Award and Jane Sharpe’s newsletter a Second Place Award.


      None of these awards would have been possible
      without great team players behind the scenes who
      supported the club leadership with know-how and

  •   The hard-working Awards Committee put together compelling narratives to persuade the powers that be that Barbara O. and our club projects were worthy of commendation.

  •   An energetic and creative Flower Show Committee expressed the joyful theme of the show and ensured the t’s were crossed and the i’s were dotted.
