Our program was Garden Club Member Vicki H. speaking on growing sprouts and microgreens. She had many hints on growing these super food in your own home just as she does at her home.  No outdoor gardening and harvest in days or weeks. We all tasted many samples and took home seeds to try it out on our own. Thank you, Vicki.

2018 Newcomers’ Event

On April 17, 2018, we had an event to welcome members who recently joined our club.

Special thank yous to Recording Sec. Janet S. and her husband for hosting this event at their home and the mimosas.  All of the officers and many of the chairmen attended and provided the snacks and floral designs. Thank you everyone and especially to Special Events co-chairman Peggy C. who provided cheese,  cream puffs, and her homemade egg salad sandwiches but was not able to attend.

The new members had a great time and President Bonnie B. introduced our new members, officers, and chairmen who were at the event. The new members learned about our club and what we do for the community.
