The Garden Club also enjoyed a trip to Akron on July 31 to tour the Stan Hwyet mansion and gardens. This trip was organized by the Catawba Island Garden Club and included 46 guests from their club and 17 members and guests of the Put in Bay Garden Club. Thanks to all involved in organizing this event, especially to Pati Arth who was in charge of reservations and lunch arrangements.
The August meeting of the Garden Club will take place Thursday, August 16, at the Yacht Club. Social hour begins at 5:00, and the program will start at 5:30. This meeting will be a participatory event. We ask that you come equipped with garden-related questions for our panel of experts. We would like to take the mystery out of gardening for you by providing research and experience-based solutions to your garden dilemmas. If you prefer, you may submit questions in advance by e-mailing them to putinbaygardenclub.com. Participants will also be provided with a list of great gardening websites. We hope to see you on the 16th, as well as at our potluck and final meeting of the year on September 13th.
