Adopt a Road Clean Up 

 Garden Club holds Adopt a Road clean up every third Saturday of the month.  We pick up trash along Riverside Road from Don White Park to the South Shore entrance to Martin's Landing.  We meet at the River Club at 9:30 in the winter months, 8:30 in the summer months.  Pick up takes about 2 hours.  Everyone is welcome.  We have trash bags and some grabbers for you to use.  Bring gloves and join us!"

Garden Club members actively participate in the Roswell Clean and Beautiful Adopt-a-Road Program                        
  • we have adopted a section of Riverside Road from the intersection with Old Alabama to the South Shore entrance to Martin's Landing
  • members sign up monthly to pick up debris from the road; cigarette butts are the main culprit :(
  • we provide vests for safety and bags for collection; come join us to keep Roswell clean

A special thanks to all members who volunteer for this service.

 Smokey Bear/Woodsy Owl competition

Once again, Pat McKenna will be coordinating the elementary school poster competition sponsored each year by the National Garden Clubs. 

Please be on the lookout for info on how you can volunteer your time with this fun and worthwhile event. 

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds
continue to move through the area, but will taper off by the the end of the month.

You'll notice many of these birds are pretty fat as they guzzle nectar at the feeders, packing on the extra weight needed for migration.

Once they're gone, keep your feeders going for winter hummingbirds, who are already arriving.

 There have been several reports of Rufous Hummingbirds in the past few weeks.
