Spring is in the air! Soon, flowers will be poking their heads up from the ground and summer cottagers will be slowly making their way back, ready to start a new, amazing season.
The Garden Club has been preparing for the upcoming sea-son with great programs and organized activities. We will be having two Saturday meetings this summer so the folks who are off island during the week will have an opportunity to take part.
Our annual flower baskets will be prepped and hung on May 17th and 18th in DeRivera Park. Anyone available to aid in this project can call Val Chornyak at (419) 285-4030 for help needed.
On Saturday, May 21st, at 10 a.m., at the Yacht Club, we will be presenting “The Challenge of Chiggers and Chipmunks.” Discover the facts regarding these pests, as well as techniques and products to rid them from our landscape, “The truth about chigger bites,” how to avoid them and relieve the itch.
We will be hosting a plant exchange on Wednesday, June 8th, at 4:30 p.m., at the Yacht Club Pavilion. For each plant that you contribute, you can take another one home. Please attach a label with plant name, size, bloom color and sun or shade requirements.
All members were emailed a new membership form for this season which can be paid by check (P.O. Box 815) or PayPal. Any questions can be addressed to Donna D’Amico (440) 212-8203, or you can go to Website: putinbaygardenclub.com/membershipdonate
The money collected is used for our flowers, replacement shrubs and programs.
