Greer gets Garden Club award
Hubert Greer has received Wesson Garden Club's Magnolia Award.
Greer accepted the prestigious award, which is presented annually, at the club's first meeting of 2021 held at American Legion Post 75. The meeting also featured a special Valentine’s Day program presented by Nancy Sullivan, Debbie Smith and Dixie Thornton who demonstrated simple, but adorable Valentine’s creations and basic flower arranging.
The club's Magnolia Award each year recognizes and honors home gardeners with the most outstanding landscaped yard and their love of gardening.
A certificate presented to Greer said he "is receiving this prestigious award because of his diligent efforts and for consistently maintaining a well-groomed yard, curb appeal, originality in landscape design, use of native and seasonal plant material and creativity throughout his entire landscape."
The club's Yard of the Month Committee -- Sonja Cowen, Joy Phillips and Marilyn Britt -- chooses award recipients. They stressed the importance of "consistency" as a basis for the award and noted Greer's "dedication and love of gardening brings credit upon himself, the Town of Wesson and the Wesson Garden Club." The award recipient must have been recognized for a Yard of the Month during the year.
Attendees at the meeting were Marilyn Britt, Sonya Cowen, Robin Furr, Debbie Hoaglin, Denise Jackson, Beverly King, Mandy King, June Owens, Pam Owens, Jennifer Peets, Jean Ricks, Joy Phillips, Debbie Smith, Lisa Smith, Nikki Smith, Nancy Sullivan and Dixie Thornton. Hostesses were Beverly King, Mandy King and Pam Owens.
The Wesson Garden Club is a member of The Garden Clubs of Mississippi, Inc. and The National Garden Clubs, Inc.
