Spring at the Garden House

Washington State Federation of Garden Clubs
  Head Quarters House

40th Anniversary Celebration

Head Quarters House (aka The Garden House) was in full bloom for our 40th Anniversary Celebratio held April 29th.  Lona Carter organized a successful celebration for about 40 members with the help of the trustees.  The ball room was decorated with lovely period floral arrangements. 

 Here is a place where the history of Washington  State Federation of Garden Clubs resides.  Picdures of our past state presidents adorn one of the walls.  There is the garden bench dedicated to Marie Wallers mother, the ramp and porch dedicated to Ginger Knutsens' mother and more.  Jeanette Pruin shared how she led the way to using our own names rather than Mrs so and so as was prevelent at the time.  Jo Ann Goldman reminsced about the plantings she made on the South side of the house in the 1980's.  More documentation is needed.  This house is a wonderful testamont to our history.
