July Meeting

Rather than a regular meeting this month we will be having a family picnic on Saturday, July 18th, 11 - 3.. Herta and Bill Wilson have graciously agreed to be our hosts at their home, 35 Grove St., Adams, NY. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to pass and their own chair. The club will be providing hamburgers and hot dogs. Ice tea and water will be provided or you may bring your own beverage if you prefer. Herta still needs some large tables so please let her know if you can help by bringing one. Please RSVP to Herta at 315 - 232 - 2324 by July 10th to let her know how many will coming and confirm what you are bringing. Remember, this is a family picnic. Your family is all invited!

June Recap

Our Garden Tour and Plant Sale went very well and both were a great success earning just under $600 for the Club! Yeah!!We had great signage thanks to Dan and Nancy Daily and Nancy Cheever. There was a threat of showers all day and even a sprinkle or two but that didn't stop anyone from enjoying the five gardens. A great big THANK YOU to our garden HOSTS, their HELPERS and ALL our VOLUNTEERS who helped make this special event possible! Weren’t the Gardens a DELIGHT!!

Several club members met at the Oswego County Fair to set up our booth and it looks fantastic! The Fair will run from July 1st though the 5th so try and get out and see our booth and all the other entries.

Get Well Wishes
Several of our club members have had or will have surgery soon. Phil Reed, Mike Nitsky and Clayton Crandall. Please keep them in mind and prayer.

Planning Ahead

On August 19th, at 7:00 pm, we will be having our Books 'N Blooms meeting at the Pulaski Public Library. Pick any book and create a flower arrangement based on the book title or theme. Fiction, children's literature or even a cookbook - the choice is yours. The club members will judge the arrangements on Wednesday and prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place. The general public will judge the following 2 days. Refreshments by: Diane Crandall, Marianne Moser & Claire Witter. Please bring the refreshments to the library.

There were simply too many pictures from the tour to include here so I have created a slide show and it was hard to choose just a few pictures from each garden. If you are reading this as an email and can't see it, click here.
