The monarchs have returned- a sure sign that summer is on the wane.The Garden Club, however, continues to keep the island looking good, watering baskets and tending to the gardens in DeRivera Park. Thanks so much to all the wonderful volunteers who have devoted their time and energy to these tasks this year. Thanks also to Val Chornyak, Reni Miller, Peggy Leopold, and Barb Hunter who coordinate these efforts for us. To these women and their committee members, as well as all others who helped out with Garden Club activities this year, please know that your efforts are truly appreciated!
The Garden Club’s final program of the year and annual potluck will be held at the Yacht Club on Thursday, September 13. The program will begin this month at 5:00 pm when Jody Frimel will discuss Fall Containers. She will demonstrate how to arrange a colorful container for Fall. Plants demonstrated will be available for purchase at wholesale prices.
The annual meeting and potluck will begin at 6:15. We ask that you come equipped with ideas for projects, trips, or educational programs you would like the Garden Club to consider for next year. Please bring a dish to share for the potluck. We look forward to seeing you then.
