GCMGA invites you to Bethesda Senior Center, 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044 on Monday, February 16th, at 7:00 PM to learn there is a native tree that will perform excellently in every corner of your property. When you plant a tree you are making a huge property investment. The right tree (or shrub), in the right place will anchor your home for 20 and perhaps 100 years. Gary Peiffer, the current DeKalb County Extension Agent with an extensive background in forestry practices and a certified arborist, will identify the good and the poor characteristics of some trees native to Georgia. He will make some recommendations and provide us with quite a few pointers on proper tree care.
The GCMGA Monday March 16th meeting at 7 PM will feature our 2014 Photo Contest and winners and features our speaker, Hazel Berger, who will judge the contest. Hazel is a flower photographer from Marietta, Georgia and has shown her work in numerous juried shows and art festivals. She has most recently published a children’s book titled Bloom Bloom Bloom which illustrates flowers through the seasons designed to teach children and adults about gardening. The meeting will be at the Bethesda Senior Center, 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044.
