Mission Statement

To share our interest in gardening and   conservation with others in the Windham community and to provide service to the Town through beautification efforts in collaboration with the town of Windham.

 

To stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening; to aid in the protection of trees, plants, animals, birds and insects; to encourage civic beautification and engagement and to instill a respect for the environment.

 

To operate exclusively on a non-profit basis and solely for charitable and educational purposes conducive to the well-being of the community and useful to the public.

 
 

Bylaws: Note

The Garden Club of Windham, CT, has new bylaws. The original bylaws, ratified in 2007, served us well. However, in fall 2020 it was time to revise them. Barbara McGrath donated essential legal assistance to ensure that as we changed the bylaws, we would retain our 501(c)3 status as a charitable, non-profit organization.

The main goals of the revision were to emphasize the club’s mission of service to the community and to reduce the number of meetings. There are now four standing committees: Membership, Budget and Finance, Community Wildlife Habitat, and Public Spaces. Ad hoc committees like The Friends of the Garden on the Bridge can be added to accommodate special projects. Apart from the Annual Meeting, there are no longer required monthly meetings, but informal work sessions will continue – a chance for healthy, outdoor socializing while tending a favorite public spot. Finally, the fiscal year will now follow the calendar year. Click the button below to read the revised bylaws:
