Our Historian, Rhonda has been digging though mountains of dusty files, notebooks and boxes tying to research the beginning of our club. The hard to find answer to exactly when our club started is proving a tad illusive. So far the oldest document that has been found is the proposed constitution that was voted upon at a regular meeting of the Exeter Garden Club in 1935. The proposed dues were to be $1 for active members. Guests were allowed in for 25¢. One of the earliest meetings featured a lecture on dish gardening.
There is a very cool scrapbook from 1947 that has newspaper clippings and old pictures from the time. The scrap book covers several garden clubs in New Hampshire.
As Rhonda uncovers more tidbits and artifacts she will reveal more interesting stories about our roots.
