The yearbooks list officers of the club, membership and the annual program. Flower Show Programs list all the available classes under which plants may be entered. The histories tell the story of the club from its foundation in 1950. The abstract of title relates to the building that the club had erected and the separate folder containing loose items holds details of the repayment of the mortgage. The calendar was not produced by the club. The certificates were awarded to the club in appreciation of its charitable work. The largest series is the scrapbooks. Some of these are annual books that document the clubs activities for a year; others highlight particular events; the remainder are historical. Regardless of the type of scrapbook, they all contain, photographs, cards, ribbons, programs and other items designed to show the club's activities.
