City Island’s most beautifying institution is over fifty years old. The fruits of their labors are evident on City Island avenue at the Post Office, Parks and other local landmarks.

The City Island Garden Club was founded by four women and now has ten times as many members. This amazing group is celebrating on Thursday, May 23 at City Island Yacht and Beach Club on Pilot Street.

The club's the lone survivor from its four original founding members, legendary City Island real estate broker Jacqueline Kall.

The organization meets on the first Monday of every month at the City Island Yacht Club, was actually founded in 1960, by City Island women who shared a passion for gardening.

Our younger generation could always follow Kall’s example. She has been heavily involved in the club since its inception, all the while building a growing business and raising a family, now being the head of her household.
