It is my understanding that here in Fort Wayne there actually is an

Kitty, we have talked of this  before but our MG candidates are selected by 
signup date and then by their interest to participate and give their volunteer 
hrs.  We have had many who were interested to increase their knowledge so as 
to apply to their own gardens or for professional reasons with no intention of 
payback hrs.
    There is a Mens Garden Club in our area also who still go by this name 
but their 'mother'(?) club has been named Garden Club of America.  In fact the 
natl headquarters is only a few blocks from me.  The local MGC has had a female 
president the past few yrs yet will not chg their name.  How many of you 
would be a member/officer to a mens club that would not recognize women?  You can 
count me out!!  My husband did join this group one yr and dropped due to this 
and because it was more social (dinner meeting ea month) than informative.
