HONORARY CHAIRMAN 2018
Dear Members of Peachtree Garden Club:
We are so delighted our dear friend and relative Katharine Elsas has been chosen to be the Honorary Chair of the 2018 Peachtree Garden Club Christmas Home Tour. Since its inception in 1923, Peachtree’s mission has been to stimulate through education the knowledge and love of gardening. Katharine has been enthusiastically involved in carrying out that mission ever since she joined Peachtree.
Katharine moved to Atlanta from Savannah and brought with her a passion for gardening that is part of her family heritage. Over the years she has gained a reputation for her vast knowledge of plants and willingness to mentor many members of Peachtree in preparation for flower shows and zone meetings. Her quiet assurances inspire confidence in participation. Katharine is a past President of our club and she now serves as a Garden Club of America Horticulture judge. In 2005 she was awarded the Zone VIII Horticulture Award. She also currently serves as a member of the Cherokee Garden Library Board.
As we prepare for this year’s Christmas Tour, we are reminded of the image of Katharine forcing bulbs months ahead as part of the decorating committee, on hand to install at the various homes or taking tickets each year. She has been an invaluable partner in every aspect of its success over the years. We are so grateful for her wisdom and enthusiasm for all of our endeavors.
Please help us honor Katharine and celebrate her many contributions to this organization and the community by being a sponsor for the 2018 Christmas Home Tour. As you know 100% of the tour’s proceeds go directly to our Community Fund, allowing Peachtree Garden Club to continue making a significant impact throughout the city and the greater metropolitan area. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you to host another wonderful Christmas Home Tour on December 6.

HISTORY OF THE PEACHTREE GARDEN CLUB
Founded in 1923, Peachtree Garden Club was the first garden club in Atlanta, Georgia. Our first Christmas Home Tour was held in 1949, a tradition that continued through the 1960’s. The tour was revived in 2008 as a way to give back to the community and is supported by Peachtree Garden Club members as well as corporate sponsors. All proceeds benefit the Peachtree Garden Club Community Fund, a 501(c) 3. Created in 2003 to serve charitable, scientific and educational needs in the fields of conservation and horticulture, the Community Fund has awarded over $400,000 in grants. Recent recipients include Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center/Swan Woods Trail, Cherokee Garden Library, Friends of English Avenue, Historic Oakland Cemetery, Neel Reid Scholarship Fund for the School of Environment and Design at UGA, Shepherd Center and Southeastern Horticultural Society.
