The Gager Society Is Now the President’s Circle

In the 101 years that BBG has existed, the Garden has had only six leaders. Dr. Charles Stuart Gager was the first. About 20 years ago, to recognize members who join the Garden at the highest membership level, the Gager Society was created in that visionary first director’s name.

Today, in addition to the current president, Scot Medbury, we are honored to have two former BBG heads who are still very active at the Garden—Betty Scholtz and Donald Moore. This living legacy of leadership has inspired a new name for this special group: the President’s Circle. The new name celebrates the enduring relationship our staff has with you, our special group of friends.

All the wonderful benefits of membership will remain; and in fact, BBG is offering new opportunities and intimate events exclusively for President’s Circle members, including previews, behind-the-scenes tours, and special receptions. We are looking for creative new ways of keeping Dr. Gager’s legacy alive. In BBG’s programming you can look forward to continued recognition of his role in the Garden’s history.
