At our July monthly Boothbay Region Garden Club (BRGC), the two college students receiving our financial scholarships, came to briefly recap their Freshman experiences with our members. 


BRGC supports horticulture based education, and we provide a four(4) year scholarship to two (2) local students at the Boothbay Region Highschool, who share our interest. It is today’s students who will be the leaders of tomorrow, ensuring the preservation of our natural resources.


Della Hahn is going to start her second year at Sewanee-University of the South, in Sewanee, TN.   She will be receiving a $3,000 scholarship each year to continue in her chosen field of Environment studies and Sustainability.


Grace Campbell is also entering her second year, at Stony Brook University in New York, focusing on  Marine Sciences, and will receive the same financial support. 


Our program was ”Summer Inspirations” and attendees brought their favorite vase and some of their own garden flowers, which were added to those purchased by the Club, to create an arrangement to share with families or friends. 


Everyone then enjoyed a Pot Luck lunch. Our two college students pleased everyone by joining in to make their own personal bouquets. It’s refreshing to have young people share in our Club’s activities and they were so enthusiastic about it!
