2019 Cottage Grove
Volunteer Banquet

Cottage Grove’s Volunteer Appreciation Banquet was held in April.  It was especially nice.  The City of Cottage Grove recognized and honored Delores Handeland, Kathy Rolfson and Glennie Dolan (absent) for founding the Pineridge Garden Club 50 years ago.  Mayor Myron Bailey presented Delores and Kathy with special founder plaques. The Club received a 50 year plaque and a living gift of three small Sonic Bloom Pink Weigela shrubs to plant in the City Hall Garden.

Our Purpose

  • To encourage all forms of horticulture, home, and community gardening and to increase the pleasure derived from gardening.

Our Goals

  • To increase awareness of members to the diversity of plant materials available throughout the world and how they are used to beautify the environment.
  • To encourage and use the varied talents of our club’s members in developing our ongoing programs.
  • To award special recognition to local residents and businesses for their efforts to beautify the community.
  • To maintain Cottage Grove City Gardens.

These gardens inspired us for 2018. Come visit or join our club and be inspired.

Members of the Pineridge Garden Club in Cottage Grove were inspired by the efforts our local gardeners. The Club recognized three area gardens on July 18th for their “efforts to beautify the community.” ** Nominate your favorite garden for our review. **
