Past District II Director Jane Brewer announced that Chipley Garden Club was named Club of the Year at the 2013 FFGC Spring Convention at Ft. Myers. 

“This is the No. 1 award given by FFGC. I congratulate Chipley Garden Club on winning this prestigious annual statewide award,” Brewer said. “The award recognizes the Florida garden club that best excels in ALL of the following categories:  Membership increase; service to membership; club programs and projects; members attending club, district, state meetings; and/or sponsored programs.  Chipley Garden Club truly shares the joys of gardening with their community and each other!  This is an awesome accomplishment, not only for Chipley, but for District II.”


No. 6 Story of 2013

Historic water tower demolished

Workers with Isler Demolition Inc. were in Chipley the evening of May 21 to tear down the historic Chipley water tower, which was determined in March to be a safety hazard. The tower sat at the corner of Highway 77 and Highway 90, and the intersection was closed to traffic while the demolition was being performed. The water tower was gone by the next morning. The cost of the project was $24,200, and the city plans to build a park on the lot once the water tower is removed.

The city is planning on developing a park at the location where the water tower once stood.
