The mayflies have come and gone for another season. A big thanks to Donna D’Amico, Kathy Schrader and Sarah Schrader Frame for removing the Mayfly nets from the flower baskets on the lamp posts. Our efforts to keep the mayflies out of the baskets were helped this season as the lights weren’t always lit in DeRivera Park. Thanks John Galvin!
On Tuesday July 23rd, a group of PIB Garden Club members, along with members from Huron Garden Club, attended a luncheon at the Catawba Island Club. After lunch, there was a presentation by Jim Stouffer of the Lake Erie Foundation on the state of Lake Erie.
The Toledo Botanical Garden was the destination for a group of members of PIB Garden Club on Thursday July 25, for a tour hosted by a ranger from Metroparks Toledo. The Botanical Garden also hosts an OSU Extension Program. A beautiful set of gardens, just a short trip away. Thanks to Susan Hildebrandt for a great trip.
Thank you to all our volunteers who water our park baskets everyday! We couldn’t have the beautiful baskets without you. Also, a shout out to the volunteers who take care of the Garden Club gardens on the corners of the park, by the bathhouse and across from Frosty’s.
