Did you know that GCA has almost one hundred named awards which it can give out each year? Some are very specific and go to only one recipient. But most of them are Club and Zone awards and are awarded to hundreds of well-deserving club and community volunteers.
Through the years we have given awards to many well deserving people and organizations. Put on your thinking cap and let me know who in our club or community should be honored this year! Each awardee is presented with a lovely framed citation of his or her award.
Here are some categories...for either club members or non-club members or organizations:
Civic Improvement: for outstanding efforts which enhance, protect or restore the local environment or improve the community through sharing the knowledge of plants and/or gardening.
Conservation: for an individual or organization which has made a significant contribution to conservation in the community.
Historic Preservation: for an individual or organization which has made a significant contribution to historic preservation in the community.
Club Horticulture Commendation
...And for Club Members only:
Medal of Merit
Club Floral Design Award
Club Appreciation Certificate
Club Photography Award
Club Communications Award
For a complete list, see the GCA Website under Committees "Awards"...then let me know your suggestions.
