Old Fashioned 1929 Picnic - Dunedin Garden Club

The Dunedin Garden Club celebrating its 80. birthday!!

Save the date (Oct. 24) -- everyone is invited!

The Dunedin Garden Club is one of the oldest, continuously active, garden clubs on the west coast of Florida, and we are celebrating our 80th anniversary this year.  We are celebrating with an "Old Fashioned 1929 Picnic at Edgewater Park", in Dunedin.

Everyone is invited to bring their families and friends, to help us celebrate.  Everyone is welcome to bring a picnic basket, or enjoy hot dogs and snacks from vendors.  We will have musical entertainment, including the Palm Harbor Crystal-Aires barbershop chorus. We are planning a variety of music, games, exhibits, activities for the kids, and a plant display.  We will also have some members doing a bit of historical re-enactment -- we hope we can find costumes! -- representing some of our founding members from 1929, and some of the important townspeople of the day.  We've also invited members of the local Model-A car club, (although we are still waiting to hear from them.) 

The detailed information is summarized below:
