Hidden Valley Lake Garden Club held a very successful BUNCO party on October 18th.
In ancient times, people would gather evergreens to bring into their homes for the fresh scent throughout the long winter. Now the Garden Club does this each year. Members met in the community center on Nov. 13th to once again make holiday decorations using evergreens, boxwood, holly and magnolia leaves. While using basically the same materials, each member created a unique and beautiful decoration.
President Kathy Schneider opened the meeting with the pledge of allegiance. The minutes from the Oct. meeting were read and Luann Roberts gave the treasurer’s report. Both were approved.
Sheri Day was welcomed back after a long absence recovering from a foot injury.
Plans for the Christmas party were discussed. It will be held on Dec. 11th at the Dearborn Country Club. The club will pay for part of the meal and everyone was reminded to bring a “white elephant” gift for Santa to pass out.
Jane Ulrick made a motion to make holiday donations to Warm the Children, Heart House and Moore’s Hill food pantry. Wilma Gardiner seconded the motion and it was passed by members.
Hostesses Sharon Hornung, Carol Morman and Kathy Schneider were thanked for providing delicious treats and warm apple cider to be enjoyed as members finished their decorations.
Wilma Gardiner made a motion to adjourn the meeting which was seconded by Judy Kay. Meeting adjourned.
