Each year the garden club donates books for the McHenry Library. The amount to spend per year is voted on by membership and a special committee selects books in the categories of plants and flowers, landscaping, ecology and natural sciences.
2011 Arbor Day Tree Donation
The McHenry Garden Club donated two trees that were planted in city parks before Arbor Day.
In 2009, the McHenry Garden Club donated two concrete benches to the University of Illinois Master Gardener Demo Garden located at McHenry County College. The benches were donated to encourage visitors to relax while viewing the beautiful environment.
