FFGC's 2017-2019 Theme
'Plant, Bloom, and Grow with Us '
District VII 2017-2019 Theme
'A Bud Becomes a Flower; A Member Becomes a Friend'
Our club projects include:
We plant and maintain landscaping at the several town parks -- Chatauqua and Blair and the Mount Dora Sculpture Garden. We have also landscaped the Donnelly House, an historic downtown Mount Dora building that houses the Masonic Lodge. We name a 'Garden of the Month' which honors a residential garden for its charm and beauty.
ARBOR DAY CELEBRATION
On Florida's Arbor Day, January 20th, we donate and plant a tree each year at a local school, town building or park.
We support several area organizations, such as Lake Cares Food Pantry, The Haven, Turning Point Ranch, Community Primary Healthcare Clinic, Life Streams, Oakland Nature Preserve, Trout Lake Nature Center, Sonnentag Icehouse Theater, and Habitat for Humanity.
We work with the Round Lake Elementary School planting and maintaining a butterfly garden. We work with the students to make butterfly houses and stepping stones for their garden. We have also established a transportation fund to help local schools transport their elementary students to the Trout Lake Nature Center to participate in the center's educational programs.
