Message from Our President:

Kathy Hall

President,  Silvis Garden Club

 

Silvis Garden Club is beginning its 15th year. Many things have changed in those years. From a small group of 12 we now have over 60 members from all over the quad cities. We are a non-profit, 501c3 organization. The club works with the City, Silvis Main Street, and the Silvis Business Association. Our volunteer efforts have resulted in the City winning the Governorís Home Town Awards for two straight years. Monthly meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Itís always a fun and interesting time where we learn about various topics from master speakers, share ideas and socialize. Each member receives a monthly newsletter ďLetís Talk DirtĒ. Annual membership fees are $7 for individuals and $11 for couples. We host a Garden Walk and hold two plant sales each year, host a city-wide Zinnia Contest for residents and conduct a Zinnia Princess essay contest for the Moonlight parade. We have built and operate a state of the art greenhouse where we grow vegetables and flowers that we use for both beautifying city spots and also offer what we have grown for sale to the public during the months of May and June. Education programs for adults and children are offered on a regular basis. Most of all, we have fun! Please join us. Kathy Hall
