Twenty-one members of the Garden Club went to the Gazebo Tea Room in Blue Ash for the July 10th meeting. Lemon curd, clotted cream, scones, chocolate covered strawberries and a variety of sandwiches were enjoyed by all.
After tea, Beverly Musari, owner of the tea room, gave an amusing presentation on antique floral containers and tussie mussies.
President Kathy Schneider opened a short meeting with the gardener’s prayer. The minutes from the last meeting were read and Luann gave the treasurer’s report.
Old Business: Luann reported that the new pergola at Hickory and Greentree should be in place by the end of July.
New Business: A discussion was held about scheduling an appreciation dinner for our volunteers. It was decided that Oct. 15th at 5:00pm would work the best.
Sign up sheets will be passed around at the next meeting for the Sept. pontoon cruise.
Kathy told members that the Aug. meeting would be a presentation by Ashley Howe on using succulents in wreaths and topiaries.
It was announced that Ken and Margaret Harshbarger on Greentree had won the yard of the month for July.
As the business of the evening was complete, Wilma Gardiner made a motion to adjourn that was seconded by Sue Marcotte. Meeting adjourned.
As members were leaving the tea room, Beverly gave everyone a twig of curly willow to start in their own gardens.
