Next Meeting -- Monday, February 16, 2015 
Sam Dixon, attorney, author and historic preservationist  

We regret that we must cancel the February 16th Charlotte Garden Club program, Historic Gardens of Edenton. Due to the weather forecast and our speaker having to travel to Charlotte from Edenton, we have decided to cancel the meeting. We hope to reschedule this program at a future time.

At our meeting, we had planned to share details about upcoming events, including two later this month - our Habitat landscaping project on Feb. 28 and the Charlotte Council of Garden Clubs' program Feb. 25 on butterflies. Look for more information about these in separate emails you will receive shortly.

Edenton, the first colonial capital of North Carolina, is recognized as one of "America’s Prettiest Towns." Join us as Edenton's own, Sam Dixon, attorney, author and historic preservationist, tells us about the preservation of its historic gardens and houses.
 
The program is free and open to the public. Meetings are held at the Mint Museum Randolph. Refreshments are served at 7pm, programs begin at 7:30pm. 
   
The Charlotte Garden Club was organized in 1924 as North Carolina's first garden club. Its purpose is to further its members' knowledge of gardening through programs and projects under the direction of experts in the fields of horticulture and design.

Members meet one evening a month from September through May to share in educational lectures and entertainment by authorities in landscape design, horticulture and other topics of interest to people who enjoy gardens and gardening.

The Charlotte Garden Club has been an Affiliate of the Mint Museum of Art since 1954. It contributes to projects designed to beautify the Mint Museum and its grounds as well as projects which add to the beauty of Charlotte.
 
Projects funded by the Charlotte Garden Club at the Mint Museum of Art include the construction and continuing maintenance of the two Courtyard Gardens which are visible from the gallery windows; the installation of a sprinkler system on the grounds; the construction and maintenance of the Terrace Garden at the entrance; and Christmas decorations for the building.
