GCI State Convention Canceled Due to Coronavirus


Although it promised to be an enjoyable time, the cancelation of our GCI State Convention was unavoidable considering the increased CDC mandates for our country and special consideration for the well-being of our members and our organization. Had we left it scheduled, the safety and health of GCI members would have been at risk. The hotel, Doubtree Hilton refunded our deposit and reservation checks were returned to our members.  


We are very appreciative to all of our garden club members who put in the work to come so close for this event. Once a date has been determined for next year's convention, please look for it to be announced in an upcoming issue of GardenGlories.  Enjoy your summer gardening!      


See you next year !
