Annual May Spring Luncheon - Installation of Officers

The GGC spring luncheons are held to celebrate the end of the garden club year, install new officers and award scholarships. In recent years the luncheons have taken place at the Trawick Pavilion on the shores of Grapevine Lake which accommodates over 100 members and guests to a themed salad and dessert extravaganza.

The May 2017 theme was Boot Scootin' Boogie. Past themes have been Splish Splash We're Having a Blast, Gardeners in Tropical Paradise, Come Grow with Us and Hats Off to 80 Years of Gardening. Special guests include Grapevine city council members, PARD management and our scholarship awardees with their parents.

Cash donations are collected for our local Grapevine Relief and Community Exchange (GRACE). In the past several years' members have donated more than $1,000 annually to GRACE, which the club president presents to a GRACE representative during the luncheon.
