A Little About Us
On June 24, 1957, a group of fourteen women met at the home of Ann Claflin, to discuss the formation of a garden club in the town of Shrewsbury. Thus began the Shrewsbury Garden Club. Today the Shrewsbury Garden Club is still dedicated to upholding the mission established by those original fourteen women.
