Click the RSVP link to let us know

We need to know how many members can join us. You can say “yes” and register, “maybe” and we will contact you later, or “no” if you cannot make it. Please let us know even if your answer is “no”! It really helps with planning. Your RSVP does not commit you: we will only require a commitment when you reserve your seat.

Open to GCOG members and their guests

We will also invite members of Riverside Garden Club and Shippan Garden Club on Monday, January 14.

Comfortable walking shoes recommended.
