A note from our President, Jane Dreyer

Hello and Welcome!

The Saugatuck Douglas Garden Club welcomes you to our new website and we wish to tell you what we are all about.  The Garden Club was founded in 1928 and Federated in 1947.  We are a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc., Central Region, and District IV No. 232 of the Michigan Garden Clubs, Inc.

We have 82 members both men and women who are committed to beautifying our two cities of Douglas and Saugatuck.  We are very proud of the two scholarships we award each year to a student from Saugatuck or Fennville who will be majoring in a science-related field with a preference given to conservation, horticulture and community service.  In the Spring we invite the 6th graders from Saugatuck Middle School to help us plant 47 pots of annuals along the streets of Saugatuck.  The students are educated about how to plant while having lots of fun.  We also help Christian Neighbors by decorating the hall for the Children’s Christmas party and shopping for families in need of a little help and cheering up at Christmas time.

We meet at various venues the third Monday of every month except January, February and March.  We would love to have you join us and see what we are about by attending any of our monthly meetings.

Plant a smile, grow a friendship.

Jane Dreyer
