CAMDEN — Nine new members of the Camden Garden Club attended the traditional New Member Coffee on Friday morning, October 15, 2021, at the home of Membership Chair Karen Cease along with the Executive Board and other members. The event, typically hosted annually, coincided with a beautiful sunny fall day and honored new members joining in 2021, and also members who had joined just before or during the pandemic as the 2020 event was canceled.

Those in attendance were warmly welcomed and treated with delicious refreshments and coffee provided by Karen and Club Board members. During the event, new Club members David Kibbe, Edith Cohen, Elisabeth Cohen, Elizabeth Grey, Carol Dennis, Vicki Mast, Cayla Mäki-Pittman, Heidi Glaubitz and Joan Herzog were introduced and able to share some of what motivated them to join the Club. Several of the new members will be sharing their knowledge at upcoming 2022 meetings on topics such as “Permaculture for Every Garden,” “Un-Wilding the Urban Environment,” as well as “Climate Change and the Science and Consequences for our Natural World.” After an enjoyable morning socializing, each new member received specially selected bulbs for fall planting as a welcome gift.

Other new members unable to attend the meeting are: Nancy Ylvisaker, Cindy Grondahl, Jennifer Gromada, and Amy Thomsen.

The Club meets the fourth Thursday of each month, April through October, and also hosts its Winter Horticulture Program at the Camden Public Library in January and February. The annual Garden Tour, the Club's largest fundraiser, is held the third Thursday in July.

The Club is currently accepting new members and encourages those interested to apply to join.

The Camden Garden Club is a registered 501c(3) nonprofit and member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc. with a mission to cultivate the art of gardening to its fullest sense, develop and preserve beauty in and around Camden, and promote civic improvements, education, and conservation of natural resources.
