Awards New and Noteworthy

The GCKY 2022 Awards Show

From Sharon Burcham

Dear Club Members,

I cannot put into words how much fun it was to recognize the clubs that participated in Awards this year.  Even though the past year was compromised by Covid, our members continued to promote, work together and make their gardens and hometowns a better place.  I want to congratulate the winners and also thank everyone who sent in applications.  The more clubs we have entering, the more prizes we can award.  Please think about submitting all the projects and hard work you have accomplished next year for an Award.  I am willing to visit your club and show you how easy it can be.  Just invite me, I’ll show up.  Listed below are the categories and winners for the GCKY Awards and the winners of SAR Awards.  At the printing of this Bulletin, the National Awards have not been announced so look for those winners next time.
