President Karen Blackmore's theme : "Plant America-Make Missouri Bloom"

Federated Garden Clubs of Missouri, Inc., is a member of National Garden Clubs, Inc. (NGC) whose national headquarters is located in St. Louis, MO. There are 100 affiliated garden clubs with 2180 members in Missouri. FGCM was officially organized on March 30, 1933, in St. Louis, by representatives of nine clubs from various sections of Missouri. The state is divided into 10 geographic districts. FGCM joined NGC in 1937.........

Hurry Spring! It will not be long now. This winter down time is so important. We have a busy couple of months ahead of us. Hopefully, you are planning to attend Landscape School in Springfield March 19-20 and September 10-11 and Environmental School in St Louis March 26-27. Those registration forms are on the website. For those of you who need to refresh for Gardening School, one is planned in Madrid Iowa April 11-12. We had hoped to have one here in Missouri but we are really covered up with events this year with our convention April 14-17 in St Louis, NGC Convention April 29-May 3 in Biloxi, Flower Show School 1 in Columbia May 17-19 and School 11 November 1-3, the Bloomin Bus Tour May 28-June 4 to New York City and the Gardens of the Hudson Valley, Federation Day at the State Fair August 14. In addition, Mary Davidson-Office and I are chairmen of the NGC Fall Board meeting September 18-20 in St Louis and Nan McCabe is chairman of the Central Region Convention, also in St Louis October 6-8.

All this in addition to the projects in your clubs and the district meetings you are planning. Missouri gardeners are busy!  I hope you plan to take advantage of all the great schools and events.

This photo was taken in Frankenmuth Michigan at the 2018 Central Region Convention in October and given to me by Kathy Roach. I never like my pictures but this one is ok. Thank you, Kathy.

Don’t forget to register for convention! It will be another fun one and I am looking forward to seeing each of you!
