State Garden Club Meeting and Luncheon

New CVGC President Harriet Kiilehua (right) represented Crofton Village Garden Club at the State Garden Club Meeting and Luncheon earlier this week at Hunt Valley Country Club.

She proudly accepted the second-place award for our club’s yearbook, and returned to Crofton with many great ideas for next year.

She and club member Margaret Woda enjoyed a wonderful program by Cathy Miller – an avid gardener, lecturer and author.   Cathy is a member of the Wyckoff Garden Club, in New Jersey, and her floral designs have decorated the White house for Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush.   Photos of Cathy’s floral creations and articles about her work have appeared in dozens of magazines, including Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, Gardening and Outdoor Living, Victorian Homes, Bride’s and Women’s Day Special publications.  More than 32 television appearances and radio interviews, and numerous lectures at the Philadelphia Flower Show are also to Cathy’s credit.

Cathy created several arrangements on site, using flowers and greens grown at her own home, and she also entertained the crowd with fascinating stories.
