STEVENSVILLE — The Kent Island Garden Club has installed a new slate of officers for a two-year term, 2019 to 2021.

Charlotte Hardman will be president, assisted by co-vice presidents Pat McCaffrey and Dawn Thomas, recording secretary Diana Saquella, corresponding secretary Jan Proctor and treasurer Genie Fitzgerald.

The new team has prepared an active agenda, which begins in April by sprucing up the gardens at the Cray House, the Kirwan House, the Kent Island Library and the county-owned Christ Church in Stevensville.

Plans include youth gardening events at the Kent Island Library in April and a perennial plant sale during the Kent Island Day celebration.
