Subject Files, 1929-2007

This series contains administrative files which document the creation, development, and growth of the Garden Club of Lakeland since its inception in 1929. Topics include awards, meetings, programs, the club library, and the various Circles of the Garden Club of Lakeland. The types of records include applications for awards to the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs for programs sponsored by the Garden Club of Lakeland, certificates awarded to the Garden Club, financial reports, minutes of meetings photographs, and memorabilia.

Of particular interest in this series are the early minutes of the meetings of the Founders' Circle, the group which founded the club in 1929. The minutes of the Garden Club in general provide a documentary history of the organization's goals and objectives.

The records in this series are arranged alphabetically by subject or type of record and chronologically within folders.
