The Garden Club of Bermuda 100th Anniversary
April 4, 2021 marked The Garden Club of Bermuda’s 100th year of existence which is a tremendous achievement.
The Club has grown and expanded over the years but throughout its evolution has always maintained a standard for excellence and a desire to assist other charities.
Donations to the Seaman’s Fund and the Military and the Naval Hospitals during the war and the creation of the gardens at Agape House are only a few examples of the Club’s commitment to its philanthropic endeavours.
From the creation of KBB to the participation in the Buy Back Bermuda campaign and more recently the Skills Development Programme, the Club has always supported causes associated with the conservation and preservation of natural resources and championed education.
We thank all our past Presidents and lifelong members who have helped the Club flourish and to our current President and existing members for carrying on their legacy and ushering the Club into a new era.
In this year The Garden Club of Bermuda held celebratory events in recognition of its rich lineage while continuing to support the community in its initiatives.
Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, there was no big party, but events took place regularly until April 2022.
To start the celebrations, we were pleased to announce the launch on April 1st of a Commemorative Stamp Issue designed by Sheila Semos, photography by Chris Burville.
The Bermudian magazine had a feature in their 2022 spring issue covering this milestone.
