It gives me great pleasure to tell you that Annette Jarvis, a member of the Rhode Island Federation of Garden Clubs, is this year’s winner of the NGC’s Member Award of Honor from the New England Garden Clubs!  I hope you’ll pass on the good news to Annette and the members of the Portsmouth Garden Club.
