Atkinson Garden Club’s first meeting of 2014 began with a business meeting outlining many of its exciting upcoming projects including plans for Civic Beautification 2014, all around Atkinson, and the Flower Show, “A Tribute to National Parks,” June 14-15 at Kimball Public Library. Afterwards, Michelle Mensinger, NH Federation of Garden Clubs President, installed the officers, likening them to a bouquet of flowers, each with its own special place and importance in the whole design.
