The Dunwoody Garden Club was one of the first organized civic groups in Dunwoody. We joined the Dekalb Federation of Garden Clubs and were actively involved when Rich's Garden Center moved into a trailer in Piedmont Park. We became a part of the early growth of the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
Carleen Robinson Savage, September 4, 1926 – January 12, 1922
Member Lana Proffit remembers her dear, dear friend: Carleen was an outstanding person and member of the Dunwoody Garden Club (DGC) for many years. She was able to accomplish anything she desired with grace and dignity and was admired and loved by all who knew her. She had one daughter, Linda McCord, one son, Don Savage, three grandchildren and many friends. She enjoyed gardening and loved flowers - most especially the daffodil which just happens to be the DGC flower.
Listed below are just a few of the capacities in which she served the club that she was so fond of and truly enjoyed.
