Celebrating Our First 90 years

The Coral Gables Garden Club Celebrated “Our First 90 Years” at its annual May Luncheon at Riviera Country Club. Highlights included the installation of officers and greetings and a champagne toast from The City of Coral Gables Commissioner Jeannett Slesnick. The City of Coral Gables is also celebrating its ninety year anniversary. The Garden Club and the City of Coral Gables have partnered for many years to provide landscaping, build entrances and erect statues, including the statue of the founder of Coral Gables, George Merrick, at City Hall.

The day included an overhead drone shot of all the ladies in the shape of a 90. There was a historic slide show of articles and pictures of garden club projects and activities from 1925 to the present and special recognition for members who have been the club 15 years or longer. The garden club looks forward to many more years of helping to provide the beauty in our “City Beautiful”.
