The meeting was called to order by President Molly Pittman who then lead the reading of the Club Collect followed by general club business.

Members were reminded of upcoming events – the National Garden Club Convention in Richmond , Virginia, May 20-24, National Garden Club Week, June 3-9, and the Expo in Columbia on July 14th.
The program this month was a plant exchange. Each club member brought a plant from their home or yard. The plant selection included such plants as Coleus, Daylilies, Basil, Queen Anne’s Lace and African Violet. Members pulled numbers from a cup and took turns selecting plants just like a White Elephant Christmas gift exchange. Everyone went home with a new plant for their home or yard.
The Glove and Trowel Garden Club was organized in January 1953 and is a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. the South-Atlantic Region, the Garden Club of South Carolina Inc, and the Coastal District of the GCSC.
