Our Heritage

For over 80 years, the Arlington Garden Club has been an anchor in the community, bringing life to lifeless areas and pretty colors to dull corners.  With a relentless pursuit of community participation, the garden club members still go about their business beautifying whatever they touch.

The Roberta Lothian Award for member of the year was presented for the first time on June of 2010.  The award is presented annually at the June Fling to a member(s) of the Arlington Garden Club who has performed extraordinary service to our club and/or  community.
