The Blue Star Memorial Marker honors all men and women that serve in the United States Armed Services. This program began in New Jersey in 1944 when 8,000 Dogwood trees were planted by the New Jersey Council of Garden Clubs as a living memorial to the Vetrans of World War II. In 1945, the National Council of State Garden Clubs adopted the program and begun a Blue Star Highway system across the United States. Large Blue Star Markers line highways across our great country in all fifty states. You will often see them at rest pavilions or intersections.

"Seeds of Service" is the name given to the recognition of exemplary volunteer service by the GCFP State President. Projects should benefit the membership, our clubs and communities. This award is only given out every two years. This year the award focused on Specialty Gardens and Promotion of Native Plants. Southern Butler County Garden Club earned the Seeds of Service Award for the Promotion of Native Plants by creating a native inspired serenity garden.

What an honor to be awarded the Club Designed Website Award from the National Garden Clubs, Inc (NGC). Southern Butler County Garden Club's website was launched in 2013 after months of planning & designing under the direction of member Rose Romboski. We were thrilled in April to find out our website won at the state level during the Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania state convention... but to receive the NGC award is just amazing! The field of judging is huge, encompassing all of the garden clubs across the entire United States. Job well done!
