At a luncheon in White Rock recently, members and friends of Summit Garden Club celebrated the club’s first 50 years and looked to future events.
Chartered in 1961, Summit began with eight members whose goal was to learn various aspects of gardening and flower arranging, starting with the basics of floral design. Four members, Dorothy Crawford, Margaret Hanson, Bunnie Newman and Kathleen Hoverson, were honored for 50 years of service.
Over the decades, the club has expanded its role to sponsoring the Smokey Bear contest at the elementary schools, providing arrangements for the hospital chapel, hosting the state garden clubs meeting and holding plant sales. Each year, since 1971, the group has awarded a college scholarship to a Los Alamos High School senior.
In recent years, it has participated in the Festival of Trees, which benefits the senior center, has given arrangements to the library, and been involved in organic gardening, especially for the youth of our community.
It is always the desire of the club was to teach youth about gardening, and to continue to learn something new, something fun. Many a club member has driven down a country road, spotted the perfect dried material for a line design arrangement, thrown the car in reverse and retrieved the prized item.
