Myrtle Findley, longtime resident of Colfax, is the first recipient of the California Garden Clubs’ Lifetime Service Award. President Maryanne Lucas and past president Bob Gordon presented the award to Findley during the Garden Club’s annual convention in Westlake Village earlier this month. The award is presented for exemplary service and selfless dedication to the mission and objectives of California Garden Clubs. Individual members, clubs and districts may submit names of candidates with supporting evidence. The award is given only at the discretion of the Awards Committee. Two years ago, Findley received the Award of Honor from California Garden Clubs, Inc., the Regional Award of Honor and the National Award of Honor presented by the National Garden Clubs President.
