The Hanover Winery was the destination of the Hidden Valley Garden Club for the June 11th meeting. The winery is situated on the old family homestead of the Schneider family. It opened in 2009 and has already won several awards for their wine.
After a pitch-in dinner beside the lake, President Kathy Schneider opened the meeting. The minutes were read, but there was no treasurer’s report.
Old Business: There was no old business.
New Business: Jane Ulrick reported that the yard of the month was awarded to Paul and Pam Plunkett on Belle Meade.
Carol Morman told members that she and Claudia had been looking into memorial ideas and thought engraved memorial stones would meet the needs of the club. Members agreed that a large stone could be engraved with the garden club name and then smaller stones for members who had passed away. The display could be placed at the gazebo or the marina rain garden. Carol will do a follow up for the next meeting.
Members were reminded that the July meeting would be a cookout at the home of MaryAnna Taylor. The guest speaker will demonstrate how to use flowers to decorate an old chair.
Judy Kay made a motion to adjourn the meeting that was seconded by Wilma Gardiner. Kathy adjourned the meeting and members then ventured into the tasting room to sample a wide variety of wines.
