April Newsletter

Since there is no "real" meeting in April, this will be a bit longer than usual. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and put your feet up!

WHEN: Saturday, APRIL 10th 10:00am-1:00pm
WHERE: Pulaski Wesleyan Church

This is a brunch for the four garden clubs in Oswego County to meet and exchange ideas. Our speaker will be Tom Basciani, who has a passion for bees! If you plan to attend and would like to bring a dish, please call Linda Cough (298-6947). She has planned a delicious brunch menu and would love to pass on a recipe.

March Meeting Recap

Our March business meeting was a success and very well attended. A big thanks goes to the club's executive board for those yummy refreshments.

A big welcome goes out to our 8 new members!!! They are Jess & Steve Bellinger, Jody Dobbin, Margaret Hall, Becky Kennedy, Sue Kramak, Sharon Lawrence, and Judy Swancott.

A vote was taken and accepted to use half of the Plant Sale money for the two community service projects our club will be doing this year. Money for charitable organizations (Friendship Shop, Lions Club, etc.) is a donation that comes from the club's general fund, and will be selected and voted on in the Fall.


Green Jeans Day is one of our community service projects. We will be sprucing up the existing garden at the Sandy Creek Library and as a thank you for letting us use the facilities at no charge, we will also spruce up around the church. We will meet at 9:00am with our tools in hand. PLEASE call Marilyn Gray at 298-7962 if you can help out in Sandy Creek and Nancy Dailey at 298-4336 if you can help out at the church. Knowing how many volunteers will help us determine what projects we can tackle. We will all meet at church at noon for a brown bag lunch (drinks provided by the club) with our plant exchange to follow. If you know that you cannot come to the Plant Sale on May 15th, you can bring your plants and extra pots this Saturday.


Saturday, May 15th is the day of our plant sale, and it is the day for the all-town garage sales. The village changed the date, it is not Mother's Day week-end this year. There will be a sign-up sheet at the April 10th brunch to work at one of the two shifts. The first shift will set-up and work from 9:00am-12:00pm, and the second shift will work and clean-up from 12:00pm-3:00pm.

PLEASE...Dig the plants up early and pot them so they look nice & healthy.
PLEASE...Lable them with their name and growing condition (sun/shade). If
your not sure, just bring it and someone will know.


Dues are due!!! $10.00 a year to join a club that promotes the love of gardening through educational programs, shared knowledge, and friendship is a real bargain!
