Our History

   The club began in 1966 when Florence Traver decided the Lake George Community    an organization to promote gardening & community service.

   Founded with just a few members, the club has grown to a current total of  65 active, 1 associate and 9 honorary members.

   While many of our members live in Glens Falls, Queensbury, Lake George, and Warrensburg, several members come from as far away as Minerva and Clifton Park.
