President Marguerite reported on an Amaryllis project that she has started. She planted ferns and baby’s breath with it. She was encouraged to bring a sample to our next meeting in February.
Kay Kohler told us about the dolls at Bonnie Turman’s shop, Creative Passions. Kay has been making an apron and an outfit for each doll that is purchased and may be given to the Kiwanis Toy Drive or to Nana’s Christmas shop. Kay sure is an expert seamstress. Bonnie donated a doll to the Kiwanis Toy Drive. This 18” doll has an apron and pajamas.
Janet Dann brought Angel wing begonia starts from her Mom’s plant. The starts were nicely rooted. Several lucky souls took the starts home. Thanks, Janet.
We discussed the Flower Power Summer bulb and plant sale. The Flower Power stock was healthy and it is an easy fund raiser because one just orders on-line and the club gets credit for the order. The Flower Power business ships out the orders to the individuals who made the purchases and the Garden Club will receive a portion of the money after the sale ends.
The meeting was adjourned at 1:25 pm.
