The officers for 1952 are recorded inside the yearbook, with some numbers which indicate their phone number, using and older system (114-3 or 141-4, see photo). The president was Mrs. Theodore Weinz, the Vice-President was Mrs. Arvis Johnson, and the Secretary was Mrs. Richard K. Miles (of Miles Lumber, which still operates in town today, in 2019). The members list in the back of the book includes several notable names, including famously, Dorothy Canfield Fisher who is listed as "Mrs. John Fisher"; in fact, all the married women were denoted by their husband's first and last name and not their own, (see photos).
The garden club was run much like it is to this day: monthly meetings began in the spring, and included educational programs, organized community projects, and provided decorations for the town of Arlington. The educational programs for 1952 included:
April 15 - Foundation Planting - Doorways, Mrs. McCabe's home
May 20 - Food and Lodging for the Birds, Mrs. Leadley's home
June 17 - Compost Making, Mrs. Whitesel's home
Sept. 16 - Herbs and How to Use Them, Mrs. Miles' home
