The Hidden Valley Garden Club held its Aug. 13th meeting in the community center. The guest speaker for the evening was Bob Hornung, an HVL resident who gave a presentation on bees. Bob became a beekeeper last year and presently has one hive. Bob told the members that a bee will have to make several thousand trips to a pollen source to make just one gram of honey. A healthy hive can produce 60-80 pounds of honey each year.
After the presentation, members enjoyed treats provided by hostesses Tonia Eidam and Judy Kay. While everyone snacked, President Kathy Schneider opened the meeting and the minutes from the July meeting were read. There were no additions or corrections so Luann Roberts gave the treasurer’s report. Kathy then read a thank you note from Gloria Weber for the flower chair that the club had given her for her retirement.
Old Business: It was decided to engrave the new large memorial stone with the garden club name and then each individual stone will have the name of a member who has passed.
New Business: Jane Ulrick announced that the yard of the month was awarded to Ken & Julia Townley on Golfview Dr.
Signup sheets for the Sept. pontoon cruise were passed around. It looks like another gastronomical treat for everyone. Members should meet at the marina at 6:00, Sept 10th.
Plans for the upcoming Bunco party were discussed. It will be held in the lower level of the community center on Oct. 17th from 1-4 pm. Tickets will be $15.00 at the door.
The business of the evening being completed, Judy Kay made a motion to adjourn that was seconded by Tonia Eidam. Meeting adjourned.
