85th Season – Suspended due to Covid-19

Rather than holding their 85th consecutive year as a fully operational garden club, the Portage Lake Garden Club has made the painful, but necessary decision to suspend their normal schedule this summer. Members will (adhering to safe distancing measures) continue to maintain the PLGC's beautiful gardens around Farr Center, the Village Park Fountain, as well as the Onekama Welcome signs and the Onekama Schools sign.

 

Most of the programs planned for the 2020 year will be postponed until 2021, so they are listed below. Stay safe and happy gardening!
