Men's Garden Club of Omaha
History and Purpose
The Men's Garden Club of Omaha was founded in 1963 by Mrs.Charles Smith in honor of her husband. It became affiliated with the Men's Garden Clubs of America in 1965. This national organization voted in 1989 to allow female membership and full participation, and many local chapters encouraged this same change. The Men's Garden Club of Omaha changed its membership requirements in 1990. Currently, the club is a member of the Omaha Council of Garden Clubs.
