It is with great pleasure to announce the winning poems from the North Haven Garden Club Annual Poetry Contest in conjunction with the National Garden Club Poetry Contest for 2022 – with the theme “Sing with the Songbirds – Exploring the Glory of Nature”. A small ceremony was held at the North Haven Library on June 13th where each child was presented a certificate and a gift card from the North Haven Garden Club. Each poem entered received a certificate from the Federated, New England and National Garden Clubs respectively.
After submission to the North Haven Garden Club, poems were submitted to Federated and judged, then onto New England Garden Club for judging and finally National Garden Clubs. Congratulations to all!
