This year’s first program of the PIB Garden Club, herb container gardens and herb pairings, was held on June 8th, with a turnout of near 30 people. Thanks to Jody Frimel for the program and the raffle items! Also, a big thanks to our new members and for the donations we received. And, as always, thank you to the Yacht Club for the use of their facility.
The next program will be the Put-in-Bay Garden Club’s fundraiser, Wine & Roses Tour, on Weds. July 14th, from 3 to 6 p.m. Local businesses, The Goat, The Anchor Inn, Put in Bay Winery and The Getaway Inn will host Garden Club members and community guests. Libations and small appetizers will be served, and each business will provide tips on how they keep their grounds and gardens looking spectacular throughout the summer season. Attendance is limited to 30 individuals with a cost of $15 for members, $20 for non-members. At this time there are still a few tickets left. Contact Sheri Murphy for availability @ (419) 348-0383. With limited parking at some sites, also consider sharing rides on golf carts.
