Claire Belsher Historic Preservation Award

Sally Thompson, Chair

Ready to celebrate? Ready to celebrate our heritage that is?

Yes, we can do so by naming a favorite garden club site you have been working on for years or even just one year.

Did you clean out an old garden site adjacent to a historical building? Did you replant with “golden oldies” plants depicting a home’s era? Did you do some cleaning up of a historical house itself? Repainting? Replacing? I would like to know what you and your fellow garden clubbers did.

Claire Belsher began this traveling award in 1977 to celebrate the U.S. Bicentennial. We still have the spirit of patriotism and I will help you to celebrate with her award at the 2016 and 2017 OSFGC conventions.
