Green Thumb Garden Club
This year, the presidential Citation Award is proudly given to
Gerda has been an active member of the Green Thumb Garden Club since 1956. That makes Gerda the member with the most years in our club. In that time she has proudly served on many of our club committees. Over 21 years ago she was the chairman of our Butterfly Garden at Lakeside Park, when the garden was started and it has grown since then. She has helped decorate the Galloway House for Christmas tours for many years. Gerda helped with the Bird Sanctuary at James Otis School many years ago. More recently Gerda has served on the Green Thumb Scholarship Committee for the past six years. She has also served on the Finance Committee and our Arbor Day Chairman. For years she has put together our summer tours and members always had a great time. Gerda also served as hostess for meetings at the Galloway grounds, Lakeside Park Gazebo and the Fond du Lac Senior Center, to name a few.
Gerda has attended many Fox River Valley District meetings and WGCF State Conventions. Her love of Gardening has touched many of the members lives in our club and our community. For many years she has served on the FDL County Beauty Council. She helps plan the Arbor Day Dinners each year. She serves on the committee that chooses the FDL County Beautification Award each year.
Gerda has given much to the Green Thumb Garden Club and our community. I am proud to acknowledge her with the 2012 Presidential Citation.
