2016 Gardener of the Year


We are pleased to acknoledge June Ann Hassebroek as the 2016 Gardener of the year. The presentation ceremony was at the home flower show at Ginger’s Home in Seattle on June 17, 2017. The show was sponsored by Seattle Civic Garden Center and North End Flower Club. Seattle Civic was started in 1918 but there wasn’t a Federation until 1933. North End also preceded the Federation, 1919. Our first Federation President Mrs. F. S. Greeley (Edna) travelled all around Washington, talking to garden clubs and recruiting them into the Federation. The selection announcement picture was taken at WSFGC Gala in March 2017. Ginger Knutsen made the announcement. (History provided by Lana Finegold)
