  • Blessed is the club in which each member makes a garden, for God may be seen in the heart of a flower.
  • Blessed is the club which cleans up the highways and home grounds,for cleanliness is next to godliness.
  • Blessed is the club which considers the children, and teaches them to garden, for these children shall become the garden clubs of tomorrow.
  • Blessed is the club which teaches conversation, for their work shall live long after them.
  • Blessed is the club which puts love and service into all their works, for greater shall be their reward.
  • Blessed is the club which works and complains not.
