Jackie Thomas was recently presented with a certificate for Life Membership in the Garden Club of Georgia. The presentation was made to Ms. Thomas by Glennville Garden Club President Pam Waters and Vice President Margaret Barnhill.

Thomas is a current member of the Glennville Garden Club, and she served as President of the Glennville club in the past.  She has served on numerous committees, both locally and in the Oleander District.  Her floral designs and beautiful landscaping of her former and current homes in Glennville attest to Thomas' talent in design and gardening.

"She has been a faithful and contributing member of the Glennville Garden Club for decades, and we always valued her gardening advice and the programs she presented to the club members. We wanted to honor her with this Life Membership in the Garden Club of Georgia in recognition of her many years of dedicated service in beautifying our community," Barnhill said.
