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.

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.”
