Millis Garden Club Facts and Information

The Millis Garden Club invites Millis residents who share an interest in all things horticultural to join us. Members are encouraged to hold Leadership Team positions as needed; volunteer on Committees; and work on civic and fundraising projects that benefit the beauty and spirit of our community.

We offer diverse programming opportunities to inspire and stimulate our members while offering the community ways to grow with us. Our Educational Programs often include lectures and hands-on demonstrations from experts in the field of horticulture. We hold fundraising and fun-raising events to support our civic beautification projects.

The Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month (except summer months) at the Millis Public Library in the Roche Bros. Community Room, unless otherwise noted. Meeting locations and times are announced in advance. We keep our members up-to-date in monthly e-mail updates. Meeting information also is sent to the Country Gazette , the Millis & Medway News, and appears on our website www.millisgardenclub.org
