Springtime is such a beautiful time in the Historic City of Williamsburg, Virginia.  Please plan to join the members of the Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. for the South Atlantic Region 2019 Convention at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel.  Our members are planning wonderful programs, beautiful designs, shopping, and of course time for the business necessary for the organization. 


Thursday, March 28th is a pre-convention day and we have afternoon programs by Shelley Fones “The Gardening Angel” and Tommy White “Alton’s Keep Wild Bird Rescue” with some of his rescued birds. So, come early to give yourself time to enjoy these presentations.  There will also be a dinner Thursday evening with David Roos’ program “Spring is Time to Clean Gardens”.


The official opening of the convention is Friday morning and David Pippin and Al Brockwell, The Dueling Designers, will entertain you at the luncheon.  Afternoon programs will include Les Parks of the Norfolk Botanical Garden and Sharon McGukin of Smithers Oasis Floral Products will let us know about their products. This evening a program on “Cottage Gardens” will be given by Gordon Chappell, retired from Colonial Williamsburg and so knowledgeable. The Director and Alternate Director for 2019 – 2021 will be installed in the evening. 


Saturday, March 30, 2019 will conclude the convention with Brunch and the Awards Program where members are recognized for all of the outstanding work they do in their Garden Clubs.  Please plan to attend the Fifty-eighth South Atlantic Region Annual Convention and celebrate with us.


For the first time the Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. annual convention will follow the SAR Convention.  Please plan to spend a few extra days in beautiful Williamsburg and attend the VFGC Convention.
