CR Convention News – June-2018
Just want to bring Central Region garden club officers and members up to date on the 2018 Convention scheduled for October 22 and 23. It’s a pleasure for the Michigan Garden Clubs, Inc. to host this annual meeting in a destination vacation community of Frankenmuth, Michigan.
Convention plans are moving forward and the registration forms are now finalized. You will find the Form included in this Website. The form also will be on the Michigan Garden Clubs’ Website at www.michigangardenclubs.org. Register early to avoid a late fee.
When you register for the convention, you may also want to make hotel Reservations at the Bavarian Inn Lodge, One Covered Bridge Lane, Frankenmuth, MI 48734 – Phone 989-652-7200 and ask for Michigan Garden Club, Group # 12L7QB. Deadline for group rates are good through September 21. For more on Frankenmuth go to www.frankenmuth.org
One of the highlight of the convention will be a NGC Horticulture Specialty Flower Show “Wander to Michigan.” It opens to members and the public at 4:00 p.m. on Monday and all day Tuesday. We need entries from all the states to make this a successful flower show. The schedule will be published soon on the CR and MGC Websites.
You also will enjoy some top-flight speakers and workshops…but more on this later.
