2016 Jan. General Meeting

On Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016,  Windermere Garden Club had its January general meeting at Windermere Town Hall.  Due to the Arbor Day Treeing planting occurring on the usual meeting day of the second Thursday in Jan., the general meeting was moved to the FIRST Thursday this month.

Our hostesses at the informal coffee before the meeting were Paula R., Joan P. and Cannon S. Great job ladies and thank you so much.

We had two  programs at this meeting. Garden Club member Theresa S.-M. presented a powerpoint presentation on growing amaryllis locally and she also spoke about caladium and amaryllis pioneer, Henry Nehrling. Next, both of our University of Florida scholarship students gave a powerpoint presentation on their ongoing research and studies. After the meeting, the scholarships students, Dr. Charlie G. and several of our members had an informal lunch at Westerly’s at MetroWest Golf Club.
