Garden Club

The Lake Christopher Garden Club meets the first Monday of every month (unless it falls on a Holiday) from Sept - June and is open to all residents of our neighborhood.

Meeting programs include Expert Speakers with gardening advice and fun social events. Proceeds from special events go back into the community for Community Projects including Tree Plantings in the parks and at the main entrances, plus sponsoring of the Spring and Fall Yard Sales with Newspaper Advertising and signs at the entrances promoting the Neighborhood Sale.
