June Meeting’s Special Speaker!
Although we do not normally arrange a speaker at our June meeting, this year we had a brief presentation by a Girl Scout, Sofia. She is working on a project to earn her Silver Award and reached out to us about coming to one of our meetings. Sharing what she has learned and raising awareness about wild bees and bee hotels has helped her in fulfilling the requirements to earn the award.

Beautiful fall iris photos from Mary LaPolla! It pays to come to meetings!!!!
I believe it got the rhizomes from the irislady that we had as a quest speaker a few years back. Last year in November a white iris bloomed (the white one has a bud on it as well). This year I have a hearty stem of four buds and the first to bloom today is this gorgeous purple one. What a way to start my morning!! In November no less!

2018 Merry Christmas Tree
Every year the town Recreation Department gives organizations in the community a challenge to decorate a Christmas tree in the Municipal Building. This year’s theme was “movies”. Our Garden Club chose the movie “Secret Garden”. Jamie Cook usually heads up this committee and being that Jamie is under the weather Bonnie Chankalian headed up the committee to master the decorating. However Jamie did supply the flowers. The tree was decorated on Thursday, Nov 29 by Bonnie, Barbara Laura, Nancy Strassheim and Mary LaPolla. Thank you for your creativity! Please stop by and see it!
