Planning is underway for a new youth outreach program in cooperation with the Hugh Embry Library and the Co-Operative Extension office. Programs for children ages 6 through 12 will be presented at the library by garden club members and assisted by library and extension employees. The program, called Nature Detectives, studies a different pollinator each summer session, through interactive activities. Each child will receive a scholastic book, a notebook, study information and 2 plants.This programs was designed by the garden club of St Augustine and has operated very successfully for 8 years. More information will follow as well as opportunities for members interested in participating.

2016 ORNAMENT HAS ARRIVED!!!!
This Year's Garden Club Ornament Features:
The Jackson Memorial Hospital
The hospital served the medical needs of much of Pasco County between early 1930s and its sale in 1981 to Adventist Health Systems.
The hospital was originally owned by Dr. T.F. Jackson, who came to Dade City in the early 1920s and established a two-room emergency hospital on the second floor of the Touchton building (corner of present 7th Street and Meridian). Seeking to expand his facilities, Dr. Jackson purchased the former home of Rev. H. N. Abraham on Church Street and moved his hospital there..... For the rest of this historical story of the hospital, come to the Chamber and purchase one of these beautiful ornaments!
They are only $22.00 each
(payable by check only to the Dade City Garden Club)
