2018 May General Meeting

On May 10th, we had a general meeting with an informal coffee at Windermere Town Hall.  I, Tanya C., was not able to attend so thank you to President Bonnie B. and Corresponding Sec. Jackie R. for information on the meeting and thanks to Dorie B. and Debra N. for the photos in this blog/post.

2018 May General Meeting #6

Our hostess were Paula R. and Carolin W. with some wonderful snacks and a beautiful centerpiece.

The program was a mock horticultural show/contest. Our club will be having a horticultural show in Nov. to celebrate our club’s 60th year as a Florida Federation of Garden Club (FFGC) federated club. There were many members who brought some wonderful plants and clippings and it was very informative.
