The 2021-2022 Garden Club at Palm Coast Scholarship Committee awarded four $1,000 scholarships at the Senior Scholarship Night held on May 2nd to the following seniors: Olivia Denino, FPCHS, Gabriella Monroe, FPCHS, Alyssa Sa, Matanzas HS, and Victoria Wilcox, Matanzas HS. Congratulations and best of luck to them. They all have career ambitions to become involved in environmental health sciences.
Each student submitted their application to the Flagler County Education Foundation and was forwarded to the Garden Club’s Scholarship Committee. The committee then votes on which students meet the criteria set by the committee and the Garden Club. They look for students that will pursue careers in environmental studies. Scholarship funds come from the proceeds at club events during the year. The club’s biggest annual fund raiser is the Spring Festival and Plant Sale which is held in April. The Garden Club at Palm Coast held several other fund raisers this year (Treasures in the Attic Sale, Fashion Show hosted by Chez Jacqueline, plant sales by the Propagation Guild) and some of those proceeds were earmarked for community scholarships. The club had great success with all the fund-raising events in the 2021-2022 season. Thank you to all who came out to support our events.
The Garden Club at Palm Coast was established in 1975 and at the close of our 2021-2022 season has 201 members. Meetings are held from September through May at the VFW on Old Kings Road on the second Monday of the month at 1:00PM.
