Garden Club


The primary goal of the Hidden Valley Lake Garden Club is to foster members’ interest in horticulture, gardening, and flower arranging. Educational demonstrations, programs and tours are arranged throughout the year for members’ enjoyment.

To encourage and promote community beautification, the Garden Club presents a Yard of the Month award to homeowners with especially attractive landscaping. Look for the yard signs from May to October, recognizing residents whose landscaping efforts have improved their lots as well as the community.

The Garden Club also promotes fellowship among the women of Hidden Valley Lake by sponsoring luncheons, a pontoon party and field trips.

We extend a gracious invitation and welcome to all new members.

Never played Bunco? No skill or knowledge of the game is necessary. Come and learn!

Bunco is a popular game played with nine dice and a whole lot of luck. Players are paired with partners at tables of four. Bring your own partner, or we’ll find one for you. As the game progresses, players move from table to table making new friends and socializing along the way.

All funds raised enable the Garden Club to beautify our community with plants, flowers, benches, etc. at various locations.

Mark your calendars now. Join us for a grand time!
