We are so happy that you chose Lake Vista as your place of residence. Lake Vista is truly one of the best places in the city of New Orleans to live as I’m sure you will agree! We would like to extend a special invitation to join the Lake Vista Garden Club.
Since 1949, the Lake Vista Garden Club has been bringing the neighborhood together. Please help us continue to create a heritage for future generations by getting together with others to learn about long-term beautification programs and planting at home. You do not have to be a gardener to join! Men & Women are welcomed!
The Lake Vista Garden Club has fun and casual monthly luncheon meetings, along with interesting guest speakers during the months of October, November, February, March and April. The meetings are held in a member’s home on the first Friday of each month at 11a.m. Annual dues are only $40.00 for Active Membership, which includes the monthly luncheons, our festive holiday party in December as well as supporting vital replanting and beautification efforts in our wonderful neighborhood of Lake Vista. Other activities: In the Spring we have a BBQ/Easter Egg Hunt Fund raiser in the neighborhood. In March we have a Wine & Cheese night with guests.
If you cannot attend the meetings but would like to support our beautification efforts you can join as a Friend of the Garden Club for only $30 and your dues will be restricted to our beautification efforts.
The Lake Vista Beautification Committee is an arm of the Lake Vista Garden Club and is made up of volunteers from the community. This group supports the overall mission of Lake Vista Garden Club: "to promote and encourage the beautifying of home gardens and the Lake Vista subdivision." Beautification projects headed up by volunteers include:
A member of the year award is given each year in memory of Olivia Tricon Vaccaro, who was the founder, a charter member, and the first president of the Lake Vista Garden Club in 1949. Mrs. Vaccaro was an active member of the Lake Vista Garden Club until her death in August of 1988.
A directory/yearbook with a schedule of events is delivered to each active member.
Lake Vista Garden Club Awards Program
The Lake Vista Garden Club Awards Program promotes the beautification of Lake Vista by providing recognition to the contributions made by individual homeowners in landscaping their property.
Recognition is provided by bestowing awards in three categories of achievement: the monthly “Garden of the Month,” “Le Petit Jardin”, and the annual “Hall of Honor.”
The winners are chosen by a team of Lake Vista Garden Club members who both walk and drive around the neighborhood during each month, and make their selection based on established guidelines.
