Biographical/Historical Note

The club joined the Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. in 1928 and participated in Atlanta's earliest flower shows such as Atlanta's First Annual Flower Show in 1934. The club has supported many Atlanta organizations such as the Atlanta Child's Home, Egelston Children's Hospital, Swan House at the Atlanta History Center, Oakland Cemetery, and Trees Atlanta.
