History of the Gettysburg Garden club

In 2020 the Gettysburg Garden Club celebrated its 60th anniversary. The Club’s 60-year history is an interesting sequence of events and contributions to this community. This article is the first in a series about our history. In April of 1960, the Gettysburg Times published a notice that there was going to be a meeting for those interested in organizing a garden club. The meeting was held on May 2, at the YWCA in the former Annie Danner House. Membership was open to men as well as women. READ MORE
