Garden Club Notice

Charlotte Canion

After its customary summer break, the Garden Club met on Sept. 20.

Attendees enjoyed a lively presentation on Container Gardening by guest speaker Charlotte Canion. Ms. Canion is a certified Texas Master Gardener who provided practical information and tips, and answered questions from participants.

With the Garden Club kicking off a new operating year, a new Board of Directors has been seated:

Lori Slocum, president

Linda Lilley, co-vice president, programs Betsy Duncan, co-vice president, programs Janice Brown, Treasurer Carole DiQuollo, Secretary Kathy Brasch, Membership Chairman Erminja Maganja, publicity chair

Our club owes a debt of gratitude to Theresa Peoples, the immediate past president of the Garden Club. Theresa is a generous leader and a fountain of knowledge who shared her love of gardening, and helped grow the club.

Our next meeting will be a field trip for club members to the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden on Monday, Oct. 18. This is a member only event and we will have box lunches at the Arboretum, with the club sponsoring the cost for bus transportation to and from the Ranch.

We invite you to join our club! We meet the third Monday of the month in the clubhouse, with occasional special site field trips. Membership is $10 per family unit. For questions or additional information, please contact Erminja at [email protected] or 916-804-5551.
