The Parkwood Garden Club (PGC) needs you! We will be 60 years old in 2012 and we need your ideas, enthusiasm, financial support and/or strong backs to continue to be a vibrant neighborhood! PGC began in 1952 as an organization of 54 neighborhood women whose purpose was to grow and arrange flowers and to maintain the Parkwood neighborhood. Over the years, we have evolved into a club of both men and women still dedicated to maintaining the neighborhood, but also to promoting safety and planning family events.

During the month of October, we are asking you to either join the PGC for the first time or to renew your membership of $40. Some of the benefits of membership are: landscape maintenance around the Park and at the intersection of the Parkwoods and East Lake Rd.; a printed directory of your neighbors; social events throughout the year; and, an all volunteer Board that meets regularly to discuss your concerns. During the past year, the Board and its committees contacted elected officials to get pot holes filled, storm drains cleaned, telephone poles removed, road signs erected and an attractive fence put up on the Park at West Ponce de Leon Ave. We continue to address issues related to noise, the health of our stream and our trees and the removal of invasive plants from the Park. Please review our great website,, for neighborhood news, crime reports, Parkwood Park updates and minutes of PGC Board meetings. We have come a long way since 1952!

Please help continue the tradition of stewardship of our neighborhood by mailing your application and $40 membership dues to the PGC in the attached envelope. The attached budget will show you how crucial your membership is to cover our basic expenses. If you have any questions or concerns about our neighborhood, please do not hesitate to call me at 404‐ 377‐5275. Thank you in advance for your support of our neighborhood and initiatives.

Warm regards,

Karna Candler
PGC President
