Westlake Garden Club wins 4 awards

Jean Smith, Westlake Garden Club's second vice president and newsletter editor, receives awards from Garden Club of Ohio district director Helen Vladic.

Sometimes lost among the flowers, plants and environmental concerns is the recognition there is also a business side to the Westlake Garden Club. Four awards were presented to our Club by the Garden Club of Ohio/The National Garden Club at the GCO’s Spring 2014 District Meeting. 

Adhering to strict NGC/GCO rules for presentation, design, appearance and educational achievement, our newsletter, the "Garden Scoop," won first place in the Cleveland District; and our website, westlakegardenclub.org, won a statewide third-place award! 

Two district Honorable Mention awards were also received: Publicity and Press, including quality, quantity and diversity; and the Member YearBook for its structure, arrangement and the long list of Club programs and civic projects. 

To a proud member, we salute Second Vice President, Jean Smith, for her diligence and hard work, creativity and concise writing that went into winning these awards for our Club.

Regina McCarthy

President of the Westlake Garden Club
