Mrs. Deal delighted the attendees with her history of past club activities.Behind the scenes of the Ocean City Flower Show are the members of Garden Club of Ocean City. This collaboration began 40 years ago when Jim Pennlyn asked the group to stage the Ocean City Flower Show. The ever-faithful, volunteer Garden Club members continue to stage the show, which has blossomed into a major, three-day event.Over the years, the club has participated in a variety of community service projects. Club members planted trees at the Tabernacle, grasses on the beach, and flowers at the information and transportation center. For many years, it maintained a memorial garden at 16th Street and Bay Avenue. This year, the club decorated the 10-foot tree in the Ocean City Free Public Library Atrium.New members are always welcome. The club meets the first Tuesday of each month at Holy Trinity Church, 30th and Bay Avenue. Interesting speakers and educational and hands-on experiences are presented each month. Plans for the 2015 Ocean City Flower Show — to be held at the last weekend in May — are already in progress.Officers are Co-Presidents Cheryl Kelchner and Angel Smith, Co-Vice Presidents Carol Dotts and Kathy Wheatcroft, Recording Secretary Joanne Romano, Corresponding Secretary Joan Chapman and Treasurer Marge Roth.— News release from the Ocean City Garden Clublast_img read more
