2021 Deep South Convention is Cancelled

2021 Deep South Convention Cancelled

After much consideration The DSGC 2021 Convention in Huntsville, Ala. has been cancelled.  The Convention Committee met and discussed their options for the Convention.  With Covid 19 still the major factor,  the NGC Executive Committee's decision to cancel the 2021 Convention in East Rutherford, NJ and the well-being of our garden club members, the decision was evident. When discussing this decision with the hotel management, and expenses at a minimum at this point, the decision was made to cancel.  Cancellation at a later date may have involved a financial penalty. 

The 2021 Alabama State Convention Committee has  also cancelled that event.  It was a a hard decision to cancel these conventions, knowing there was much business that needed to be discussed, committee meetings to be held and above all the  fellowship that we all enjoy.  Our prayers are with all our fellow garden club members for their safety and continued garden club involvement.
