Award: Wake Forest Organization of the Year
The Wake Forest Garden Club is honored to be named as the "Wake Forest Organization of the Year." We received this honor at the 75th Annual Community Dinner. We would like to thank the Wake Forest Community Council and the Wake Forest Community Dinner Commitee for all their efforts. Incidentally, we were the first organization to be named Seventy-Five years ago. This is our 99th year serving the town of Wake Forest by using our projects to educate and enhance the community.
Every volunteer organization in the town of Wake Forest deserves this honor. It is the volunteers and their organizations that make Wake Forest such a wonderful place to live. We are proud to be such an important part of our Town's history.
January Meeting 2023
Brandi's Botanicals presenting inspirational and creative floral arranging.
Our members decorated the Community House for the The Wake Forest Historic Preservation Commission and the Wake Forest Woman's Club's biennial Christmas Historic Home Tour House Tours. "Are the wreaths for sale"? was heard many times. The wreaths were all beautiful and provided the opportunity for people to stroll through the building and admire the beautifully decorated fireplace mantels while enjoying a sweet treat from the cookie table.
After a lunch in Durham, we visited the Chatham Mills Pollinator Garden in Pittsboro. We were given a private tour by the “Agricultural Extension Agent” for the Chatham County Center.
The garden features over 225 species of perennials, trees, shrubs, vines, and grasses,
and 85% of them are native to North Carolina.
Our members have been busy since the lantern workshop (held September 26) creating their own beautiful lanterns - here's some samples!
