Welcome, Pledge of Allegiance, Exciting Reading and Prayer, Called to Order the Meeting, and our visitors are introduced to membership. They told us the history of the Greeneville Museum and the Cabinet and told us why they wanted us to consider this a new project. In the late 1700’s, they were asking us to rebuild the landscape to reflect colonial times. They need protected and decorative and educational gardens.
They also gave a brief history of development at the local, regional, and national levels. Additional details must be collected by Kathleen Wright and Barbara Freeland, both trained and trained in horticulture and landscaping in accordance with the National Garden Club guidelines. He suggested that club members gather more information and submit a memorandum to visit the institution. They are especially looking for contemporary plant placements that mark the historic period of the cabinet and the museum. This proposal for a new project on EastSide is filled with interest and joy.
After a hearty lunch with Julia Wadele, Elizabeth Wilson, and Jeanny Jackson, the meeting resumed. New members have been appointed to replace existing members.
