BRANDON GARDEN CLUB RECEIVES AWARDS FOR OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE
The Brandon Garden Club (BGC) is proud of its recognition by The Garden Clubs of Mississippi, Inc. (GCM) of its continued outstanding performance. GCM has 116 member clubs. BGC is a member of GCM’s Natchez Trace District. At the most recent conventions of The Garden Clubs of Mississippi, Inc. and Deep South Garden Clubs, Inc., BGC was proud to be named “Outstanding Garden Club of the Year” in both the state and the six-state region.
BGC has received GCM's first place award for its Publicity Press Book for several years and also received first place awards for civic achievement and public relations. In 2016, 2017, and 2017, BGC received the first place award from the six-state Deep South Garden Clubs, Inc. for its publicity press book.
BGC received the GCM first-place civic achievement award for their interior plantscaping project at Brandon Municipal Complex, where planters and plants donated by BGC for the atrium and lobby transformed the previously austere space to provide a welcoming atmosphere. The plants are watered and maintained weekly by BGC.
Brandon Garden Club (BGC) was established in 1952 and continues to be a driving force in the community.
