Fairfield Harbour Garden Club Update

The Garden Club held its General Meeting on February 12, 2024. The membership chair welcomed one new member and one returning member to the Garden Club.

The Garden Club welcomed speaker Laura Lewis from the Craven/Pamlico Beekeepers Association. Laura gave an interesting presentation on the various varieties of bees, the workings of the hive, and their honey production. Everyone enjoyed the presentation which was followed by a question period.

Jan Reitzel gave an informative presentation explaining to the membership how the proceeds from the various fundraisers help to support the Scholarship Fund. The Garden Club presents one $1,000.00 scholarship to a qualified student in the Craven or Pamlico counties annually. The student must be enrolled in or attending a college seeking a degree in horticulture or related studies. Hazel Alcock has sent out all the information regarding the Scholarship Application to the Craven/Pamlico High School Counselors. Interested students may visit the Fairfield Harbour Garden Club Website at for more information.
