La Plata Garden Club installs 2017 officers
‘Ellersie,’ the historic home of Denise and Kevin Grote, was the setting for the investiture of the recently elected officers of the La Plata Garden Club. ‘Ellersie’ was the childhood home of Sir Thomas Jennifer, a Maryland signer of the Declaration of Independence.
The new garden club officers will preside over club activities which include monthly plant science speakers, the Star Memorial Garden honoring those involved in the 2002 tornado, county wide beautification projects, summer garden walks, plant/yard sales, public school science awards, and two Charles County scholarships.
The investiture was under the direction of Anna O’Kelly, Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland District II director.
