Continuing Projects

Shenandoah Rose Garden Club members have continued many projects from year to year. Through these projects Shenandoah Rose members grow along with our gardens.

All of our members will participate in all of our projects either by donation or physical participation. 

Many of our members actively support the Yellow Daisy Flower Show at Stone Mountain Park, sponsored by Redbud District of The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. Members regularly volunteer as judging clerks, hostesses and as photographer.

One member of our club provides sole website development and support for the Dekalb Federation and Redbud District websites. The 2015 combined service time for these projects is more than 200 hours.

Our club will be 100% in sales of The Garden Club of Georgia engagement calendars to benefit the state scholarship program.

The club will continue to provide Valentines for the VA Hospital patients on Valentine’s Day in cooperation with The DeKalb County Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc.

We will continue to support their need for clothing and underwear for their patients – “Fig Leaf Project”.

We will again make holiday swags and wreaths to decorate Meadowbrook Nursing Home in Tucker. We will also make centerpieces for their 15 tables. Since 1977 Shenandoah Rose Club members have been making Mother's Day corsages for Meadowbrook patients. Also since 1977, we have sponsored the adoption of a needy family for Christmas.  This annual project has helped our members grow in service to the poor in our community.

As part of the drive sponsored by The Garden Club of Georgia, we will continue to “Pull & Save Tabs for Ronald McDonald Houses” to recycle and provide funding for the needs of families in these homes away from home while their child is healing in a nearby Children’s Hospital.

Three members regularly volunteer at The Garden Center with five members serving on the DeKalb Federation Board and five members serving on the Redbud District Board.

One member served on the National Board and two serve on the Deep South Board and Garden Club of Georgia Board.

We will continue to keep informed and involved with emails and letters regarding neighborhood zoning and civic concerns.

We will continue to beautify a spot in the community with “Planned Plantings for Special Places” in ongoing support of the previous National Garden Club President’s project.

New Projects

In support of the current National Garden Club President's Special 2-Year Project "Service in Action", club member focus for this year is planting individual pollenator gardens and creating habitats for the "solitary bees". We have also donated "Frightened Frog" books and are working to complete our 100% goal for Backyard Wildlife Habitat certification.

Projects have 100% participation in hands-on work, planning, or funding.

We will ask each member to be an ambassador to grow our membership.  We will use innovative ways to interest and invite our friends and neighbors to join our efforts in the community and enjoy new friendships.

Members of Shenandoah Rose agreed to adopt a “Ban Plastic Bags” program in support of the GCG and in keeping with the NGC theme “Making a World of Difference – Choices Matter”. Choose to bring your own bag and Just Say No to plastic!

The club also plans to reach 100% participation in the “DeKalb Recycles” program.
