The Ingomar Garden Club presented a Standard Flower Show!
Sept. 9, 1pm to 7pm & Sept. 10, 9am to 1pm
Sherwood Oaks, 100 Norman Drive, Cranberry Twp.
A Standard Flower Show is an educational experience, displaying
the design talents and horticultural abilities of the garden club members.
Welcome! The roots of Ingomar Garden Club were planted in 1946 by the late Maude Seibert of McCandless Township and have produced a strong and vigorous service organization that has improved the lives of many in the Pittsburgh area. We are very proud to serve this community!
Members of IGC have been responsible for planting thousands of trees over the years. The group has maintained two public community gardens, held over 40 garden shows, conducted annual plant sales, and taught both young children and senior citizens the joy of horticulture.
As the new year unfolds, we look forward to sharing our projects and programs with you! IGC pours into the community with numerous civic endeavors. Annual scholarships, horticulture therapy, nursing home outreach, Junior Garden Club in Hampton Township School District, Novice Organic Garden Club in North Allegheny School District, Hartwood Acres planting, David Councill Memorial Park garden, "Edith's Garden" at Northland Library, Garden of the Month, bi-annual flower shows, North Hills Community food drive - just to name a few

To The Best Club ever,
Growing Forward is our club theme, and with each activity we continue to grow forward with big strides.
Ocean Treasures and Pleasures flower show was a huge success. We were given MANY congratulations on a wonderful show. Our guests were greatly impressed. We were a blessing to many, and thus we were blessed. Thank you to all of the hard working chairmen and their committees and their entrants. We had around 210 entries and 40 club members participate. Those who participated are to be commended for their energy, planning, and efforts. We won the Staging Award which lead to MANY more awards and enough points that we need to produce the Book of Evidence to apply for this Flower Show award. The judges were impressed.
Next came the District IX meeting and luncheon held at Twelve Oaks off Rt 228. Again Ingomar Garden Club members won many awards. These will be announced at the October meeting. Listen for the award for Julie Barnes.
I was reminded that Ingomar Garden Club is noted all over the state for the many Conservation- Youth awards that are received. Thank you to Chris Hawthorne with her 19 years of service and her co-chair Barb Oswald.
Now lay back and enjoy the rest of the September projects and Field Trips. Our next glorious event is the 70th Anniversary party.
Sincerely, Ann Ferguson
