The WGC delegation have had a wonderful time at the GCA Annual Meeting in the "city by the bay". There were 2 days of fabulous speakers as well as presentations by national committee chairs, Zone Chairs, workshops, plus hort displays and a flower show. At the end of the business meeting, the 2019 GCA Annual Meeting in Boston was announced by our own Zone One representatives.

Horticulture judges examine entries by garden club members at our club Flower Show April 23 at the Worcester Club. Their comments were very positive and Kathy Michie won Best in Horticulture for her croton plant with its rarely seen flower. Go to the Photo and Design sections of the website to revisit the show.
