Forget-me-not moments at La Jolla Garden Club luncheon

By Susan DeMaggio

With roots that date back to 1968, the La Jolla Garden Club marked its 45th anniversary on May 22 with a luncheon in town. Outgoing president Ina Thompson welcomed members who perused the club scrapbook, viewed photos from the recent Mother’s Day Garden Sale and mingled over ice tea.

The club’s new officers — Linda Ryan (vice-president), Natalie Crain (vice- president), Nancy Koch (president), Brigette Blood (treasurer) and Barbara Hand (recording secretary). Not pictured: Jan Morris (corresponding secretary).

After lunching on cornucopia salad, bread and cheesecake, club members were treated to a concert by the Sweet Harmony Choir, performing a medley of Broadway show tunes titled, “Leading Ladies.”

The La Jolla Garden Club explores gardening and floral design, and provides funds for a national re-forestation program and scholarships for local horticulture students.

The club's yellowed scrapbook contains memories of past events.

The club meets September-May at 1 p.m. on third Tuesdays at La Jolla Lutheran Church, 7111 La Jolla Blvd. Meetings typically feature a guest speaker and tea reception. Newcomers are welcome. For more information, send an e-mail to:

Club member Toni Tommey opens the luncheon with a meditation.
