Arts, Flower and Garden Club holds March meeting

The first meeting of 2014 of the Arts and Flowers Garden Club was held on March 13 at the Washington Carnegie Library. President Linda Cornelius called the meeting to order and welcomed the members and guests. Hostesses were Susan Frye, Pat Reinhart, Jan Wake, Sheila O’Maley, Linda Cornelius, and Barb Fyffe. Guests attending were: Peg Stephens, Cheryl Thomas, Mary Theobald, Loretta Kendall, Bev Spillman, and Chris Seal.

Vice-President Sheila O’Maley introduced the guest speaker, Ryan Lough, horticulturist and landscape designer from Perk-A-Lawn, who gave a very informative presentation on garden lighting, “Light Up Your Life.” He spoke about the different types of lighting, when to use each type, the variety of fixtures available, and how to use lighting to best accent your garden. He described equipment needed in lighting, such as the various styles of fixtures, transformers, wire, bulbs, etc. Lough described lighting projects that could be considered DIY and those that require professional installation. Since lighting projects can get pricey, one should plan carefully before purchasing.

Vicki Bubalo, who is chairing the Garden Walk project, spoke about the Sugarland Stroll to be held on June 8. So far, so far there are five homeowners committed to participating in the walk. There will also be an arts and crafts show at the garden walk. Ticket prices will be $8 in advance and $10 at the gate.

Also in attendance: Flo Cavanugh, Sue Colbert, Linda Free, Phyllis Free, Sue Garrett, Diane Gill, Janet Goodwin, Mary Lou Gotwald, Betty Hammersly, Sue Harper, Kathleen Harris, Judi Hill, Bonnie Jones, Linda Myers, Fran Neal, Jodi Parsons, Dorothy Pegler, Jennie Richardson, Jan Smith, Bev Summers, Pat Thompson, Nyla Wachter, and Vicki Wright.
