The Garden Club of Goshen – Celebrating their 90th All Year

Memorial Day Parade

The Goshen Garden Club has been celebrating their 90th Anniversary throughout 2023 with a slew of wonderful events.  Their dedication to sharing their knowledge of gardening, conservation, ecology, and wildlife habitat has inspired the planned year of events in every way, in addition to the projects that are a part of their regular club activities.  From monthly flowers at the Goshen Library to the maintenance of the Camp Cochipiannee Gardens & Beautification and the Public Works Building War Memorial at Town Hall.

The “medium-sized club” of 50 members attended the recent 94th Annual FGCCT Awards Meeting luncheon to collect several awards, an Individual Citation for Civic Achievement for the float designed for the Goshen Memorial Day Parade by members Kerwin Mayers and Louise Krozek and member Gina Cain was recognized with a Certificate of Individual Achievement in Therapy Gardens for her work with art students to decorate cans that are used as vases in the club’s therapy program at four nursing homes in Torrington.  As we go to press on this newsletter, the club is preparing for their November 11 Fall Fundraiser- a Fashion Show and Brunch titled “Red Hot & Fabulous.”

It has been quite a year for the Goshen Garden Club with much to celebrate!
