Civic Projects

East Boulder Senior Center Pocket Garden: Barb Gardner chairs this activity. In 2004, the BGC adopted a pocket garden at the entrance to the Senior Center. Members plant and maintain this garden throughout the year.

CFGC Scholarship Fund: Member Jill Jagemann is the CFGC Scholarship Chairman.

Penny Pines: The Club has donated to a Penny Pine plantation in support of reforestation in Colorado. The Forest Service uses our donation together with Federal funds and provides protection from fires, insects and disease as it does with all plantations. These are part of the regular reforestation program that plants on burned-over and brushed-covered areas which are potentially productive timberlands, providing soil protection, watershed protection and beauty and recreation benefits.

Growing Gardens: Lawrie Wilson is a regular volunteer for this organization that educates children aged 4 through 10. Other members participate. This non-profit organization creates community through gardening. In 2019 the club made a $500 donation to receive fruit donor status and be recognized on the orchard gate.

World of Wonder Museum: The WOW museum, in Lafayette, is a hands-on learning museum for kids. The Club has donated towards the purchase of plants for their new garden area.

City of Boulder Tree Donation: The Club donated a Swamp White Oak tree that was planted at the East Boulder Community Center.

Honorarium Donation: A member/speaker, who is a breast cancer survivor, declined her Honorarium and asked that we make a donation to breast cancer. We donated to Anschutz Medical Center for breast cancer research.

Fund Raising
