Arts and Flowers Garden Club meets at library

The September meeting of the Arts and Flowers Garden Club was held recently at the Washington Carnegie Public Library. President Linda Myers called the meeting or order and led the group in the pledge of allegiance. She thanked the hostesses, Shelia O’Maley, Joan Buchanan, Cheryl Cornelius and Julie Lancaster. Secretary Bonnie Miles called the roll and read the minutes. Treasurer Janet Goodwin gave the report.

President Myers announced that the district meeting will be in Petersburg Oct. 24. It will be led by District Director Sue Furman. She also said the club was invited to the dedication of a Blue Star marker Oct. 6 at 2 p.m. at the Lincoln State Park.

Vicki Bubalo informed the group that the Garden Walk will be June 8, 2014. It will be called the Sugarland Stroll. She had a positive response from those who were asked to participate.

The club will donate $200 to the United Way. Bubalo commented the club is the largest garden club in Indiana and believes it is because the members are civic-minded.

Shelia O’Maley said the hanging baskets on Main Street would be freshened due to the upcoming car show with out of town visitors. Becky Kremp said there will be a clean up day in October at the courthouse grounds.

Shelia O’Maley, Linda Cornelius and Tunia McClure will be in charge of the garden of the month project.

President Myers then introduced Kathleen Harris who gave the program “Community Gardening.” Community-supported agriculture farms cropped in the 1980s to support people who wanted to buy locally-grown food, preferably organic. Indiana counties offering CSA programs are Knox, Monroe and Vanderburgh counties. In Marion County there is a company called Green Bean Delivery that brings produce, meats, prepared and frozen foods and dairy items to the door. They also donate thousands of pounds of fresh organic produce to places like Second Helping and Gleaners to feed the hungry. The community-supported agriculture markets continue to grow.

Beth Yake of the Produce Patch gave an interesting presentation including the history of the Produce Patch.

The next meeting will be Oct. 10 at the Washington Carnegie Public Library.

Others member attending were Flo Cavanaugh, Barbara Fyffe, Betty Hamersly, Sue Harper, Judi Hill, Bonnie Jones, Shirley Jones, Katie Myers, Fran Neal, Dorothy Pegler, Jennie Richardson, Bev Summers, Pat Thompson, Jan Wininger, Nyla Wachter and Mary Lou Gotwald.
