On September 28 the Garden Club of Jacksonville welcomed long-time members, new members, and those yet to join us as Friends to our 2023 Open House. Over 300 guests enjoyed a variety of free small bites and drinks from a cash donation bar. The Garden Club’s new certificate designating it as a historic landmark of Jacksonville was proudly displayed. Informational tables about each of our programs and membership were set up and ready for guests to register as volunteers or join us as Friends while a video stream of photos from past programs played on our new projector screen. Guests also had a chance to sample, and order our delicious holiday pecans!

Thank you to the members of the Board of Trustees for hosting and supporting this event, and to saxophonist Pierre Kendrick for providing exciting live music.
