Garden Club enjoys guest speaker, donates Camellias


The Long Beach Garden Club held their February meeting at the Long Beach Senior Center and welcomed guest speaker Carmel Lopez-Lampton, who visited from Jackson to speak with the group about the design and history of the Governor's mansion garden.

The Garden Club also held a small tree planting ceremony for Mississippi's arbor day (observed on February 9), donating five Camellias dedicated to the Quarles family. The ceremony took place at Greenvale.
