History Museum exhibition celebrates 90th anniversary of LA garden club

The Los Altos History Museum commemorates the contributions of the Garden Club of Los Altos with its upcoming exhibition, “90 Years of Flowers: Celebrating the Garden Club of Los Altos,” scheduled to run through April 28 at the J. Gilbert Smith House, 51 S. San Antonio Road.

The Garden Club is responsible for the original Pet Parade (now organized by the Los Altos Kiwanis Club), the Japanese tea garden that once graced Shoup Park and the daffodils along Main and State.

The Los Altos Men’s Club established the Garden Club in 1929 for the purpose of organizing flower shows in Shoup Park, which became an annual event.

“We’ve gathered a lot of material from the archives that showcases the history of the Garden Club from the start until today,” said Jean Gillette, club president.

The exhibition is free.
