in Community/News by

In light of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic, the Beaufort Garden Club has canceled its Garden A Day event which was to take place June 1 to July 5.

“This was a very hard decision to make, but we believed it was the right thing to do in light of the uncertainties still remaining with the virus,” Pat Keown, Chair of Garden A Day 2020, said. “We just didn’t want either our volunteers or garden visitors to take any chances with their health.

“We will be back next year, again the first week of June, and we look forward to seeing everyone then. Be safe.”

The Beaufort Garden Club, the second-oldest garden club in South Carolina, has been holding its Garden A Day event every year since 1984. The event draws large crowds from South Carolina, surrounding states and even from as far as Canada.
