Recognition for our Arbor Day & Conservation Efforts

The Dracut Garden Club was recently honored to receive 2 awards for our Celebrate the Earth program.  The GCFM, Inc. held their annual Fall Conference on October 26, 2015 where our state garden clubs come together to connect, learn, and celebrate achievements.

The DGC was given The Charlotte Lane Connor Arbor Day Award, a silver bowl, for our Arbor Day/Earth Day event (Celebrate the Earth) which included programs, educational exhibits, and the planting of an American Elm tree. This is the 6th time we have received this award in the last 12 years from the GCFM!

We were also recognized with a New England Regional Award this year.  The Laura Wetmore Conservation Award was presented to us for the environmental education, exhibits, and programs at our Celebrate the Earth event this past April.

A big thank you again to the Celebrate the Earth Committee and everyone from the Dracut Garden Club, the Town of Dracut, and participants who supported us with another fantastic, award-winning event!
