Parade of hats highlights 60th anniversary Riviera Garden Club luncheon
Founded in 1957, The Riviera Garden Club is an association of amateur
gardeners who further their knowledge of gardening and the environment.
We have speakers on garden topics at our meetings and take tours to gardens.
The objectives of the Riviera Garden Club are to mentor youth, to
educate, increase interest in gardening, plant and bird life, conservation
of all natural resources, and the beautification of our city. We also offer a college scholarship each year to a high school senior planning to major in horticulture or environmental studies.
We are a incoporated nonprofit benefit organization.
The picture above shows our scholarship winners Bruce Kok and Kayla Fort with member Pati Johnson.
Currently the club has about forty members. Regular Meetings are
held from September to November, and January through May, on the fourth Tuesday of each month, at 9:30am. The meeting starts with socializing at 9:30am, followed by the business meeting at 10:00am and the speaker at 11am.
The regular meetings are held at the
Torrance Airport General Aviation Center Meeting Room, unless tours are
planned. Meetings of the board of directors are held the same months and the
same time as the regular meetings, on the third Tuesday of each month. The
board of directors meetings are held in membersí homes.
Riviera Garden Club members

California State Garden Clubs
