Magnolia Garden Circle

Established 1947                                                                                                                    Club # 01-120-190
Supports PFGC Events– No Circle Meetings – Some Circle Meetings on Sunday afternoons

Magnolia members refer to our Circle as the “No Guilt” club as we encourage but do not pressure members to be involved in Pensacola Federation of Garden Club (PFGC).  We have a full year of programs and field trips planned with most meetings on a  Saturday from 2 to 4pm. We also disseminate information of upcoming programs and events of interest to our Circle members on a monthly basis.  We will meet when a project or program requires our immediate attention.  Email is a must to stay informed.

We try to support all PFGC functions if members are interested.  For example we support the Secret Garden Tour, publishing of The Camellia newsletter, and the Pensacola Fair with horticulture entries, table design, and a display garden.  We encourage volunteerism and leadership.  Member interest and availability determines our participation level.  Several of us are active in the leadership of the Federation.  We encourage attendance at the District meetings where a program is offered.

This past year we met in the summer to plant caladiums and nurtured them through October when we featured them in our “Evening in Paris” display garden at the Pensacola Fair.  We researched table design and won the Club Competition at the fair.  We also learned how to make fabric hypertufa pots.

Member interest determines what we do.  Our programs are listed in the table below.  So if you have a bucket list and want help implementing it Magnolia Circle may be the perfect fit for you.

History:

After the end of World War II the interest in home flower gardens was gaining wide interest among new and young homeowners.  The Garden Club Circles were at that time overcrowded.  To take care of new members the Crepe Myrtle Circle asked Mrs. D. McGuire to form a new circle.  The Magnolia Circle was organized in October 17, of 1947 with nine charter members.

One of their first projects for the Federation was decorating for Easter sunrise service at Bayview Park.  The next major project was decorating and sponsoring the annual luncheon.

Magnolia has put their mark on the community with many projects and we will continue to do so in the future.
