Garden Club Creator Louise to Turn 99

Next Tuesday, February 4th at 7:00pm Lou’s Garden World on Oleander will host the very special birthday of Ms. Louise Ramsdell. Louise is one of the original creators of the Sea Oats Garden Club that was formed in 1987. Guest speaker Heather Kelejian, Supervisor of the Ability Garden, New Hanover Co. Arboretum will be there, Past and present club members and friends are invited. Louise has had a lifelong interest in gardening, among many other things. She had completed the Master Gardening course and is also at the highest level nationally in the rosarian society. Unbeknownst to her family, she celebrated her 90th birthday by sailing on the Queen Elizabeth II which was hosting the rose society's symposium on board. She remains independent in spirit and mind but has the help now of caretakers in her home. 
The Sea Oats Garden club continues to contribute to Carolina Beach although our members are not exclusively from the island. We have seasonally decorated the gazebo for several years, volunteered at Carolina Beach Elementary school's garden and other areas in the boardwalk.
