July Newsletter

The Club's garden tour & plant sale last month was a $774 success!!  A huge thank you to Marci for coordinating the event,  Claire for making the flyers, Vic for getting the signs, Marianne and helpers for a great plant sale, and everyone who baked goodies, brought plants, sold the tickets and assisted at the viewed gardens.  It takes many people to pull off a successful event like this...  
Our Club did a super job at the Oswego County Fair, and took first place!!!  Thank you Marianne for your vision and leadership
on this project.  And thank you to all who donated plants and items for the booth, and helped with set up & tear down.
The next meeting is Wednesday, July 20th, 7:00 PM, at the Pulaski Public Library.  It is our "Books & Bloom" flower arrangement showing.  This is a very well received community event.  We have been doing it now for many years and the public really looks forward to it.  And it is a wonderful outlet for that creative streak we all have!
RULES:  The book that is being interpreted (novel, cook book,how-to,biography,mystery,etc.) must be included with the flower arrangement, which can come from your own garden or purchased.  Accessories are encouraged. 
                 Make sure your container does not leak, we will be using the tops of the bookcases.
                 Your entry will need to be picked up on Friday, July 22nd.  If anyone has a problem, I will be available to do it.
                 Entries will be judged by all Garden Club members attending that night, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.
                 The public will vote on Thursday.
                 You may bring in as many arrangements as you would like, but you will only be able to enter ONE for judging.
PLEASE consider entering an arrangement!!! Each entry gets a names are exhibited!  It is fun, and the public truly enjoys seeing our creations.
