Information for Potential Members
The Great Island Garden Club meets monthly, September through June, generally on the first Tuesday morning of the month. Meetings are held in the Macomber Room of the New Castle Library. We start with Social time at 9:00 AM, followed by the Business Meeting at 9:30 and the Program at 10:00. We encourage potential members to attend a meeting as a guest prior to joining the Club.
Requirements for membership are:
1. Actively serve on a committee(s).
2. Actively participate in our annual plant sale, generally held on the third Saturday of May. Currently, we ask members to either donate 10 plants from their garden or make a monetary donation. If available, members are also asked to help with working at the Plant Sale.
3. Help with maintenance of the Town Hall and Post Office plantings by watering for one week during the Summer/Fall. The responsibility each week is shared by at least 2 members.
4. Pay annual dues of $60.
