At the October 26 annual Fall Conference, the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts bestowed the Barbara May Website Award on the Groton Garden Club. Our web site was noted as a model of excellence for other clubs to emulate. The award was presented by Betty Sanders, President of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts, to the dedicated and enthusiastic web team of Penny H, Barbara SW, Juliet S, Ellen T, and to president Laura S. The recently revamped web site is updated regularly, and runs on the most current technical platform. It offers information on how to become a member, a calendar for meetings and the annual Plant Sale, garden resources, local horticultural highlights, National, State and Regional committees, and information about the club’s 90-year history.
A new, notable feature of the site is the front-page “blog” area, in which the web site committee presents a continuous stream of articles on various garden and club-related topics.
Interested gardeners may subscribe to receive automatic e-mails reminding them of every new article, by entering their e-mail address on the home page, in the box in the sidebar on the right.
