Vickie and Wayne Stubenrauch, 20632 Heather Court, has been chosen for the HVL Garden Club yard of the month for October.
The Hidden Valley Garden Club met at the community center for their Oct.13th meeting. President Sharon Hornung opened the meeting with the gardener’s prayer and then the treasurer’s report was given and the minutes from the Sept. meeting were read. Corresponding secretary, Carol Morman, reported that she had sent out a get well card and a thank you note for a donation to the club.
Old Business: Members were reminded that the Christmas party will be held at the Dearborn Country Club and that payment will be expected at the next meeting along with the annual dues.
New Business: The yard of the month for October was awarded to Wayne and Vickie Stubenrauch on Heather Ct. It was decided to have an “ugly Christmas sweater” contest at the Jan. soup supper meeting. Dates for a spring Bunco party were discussed and Jane said she would check with the office about available dates.
Luann asked members for donations of lighted deer for a Christmas display at the front entrance. Donations from the community would also be appreciated.
The November meeting will be held in the community center. It will once again be holiday decoration time and everyone was asked to bring in any greenery they have at home to share with others.
Since this meeting was the annual auction, Luann asked that proceeds be donated to One Way Farm Children’s Center. Members agreed to purchase a gift card for the shelter with a limit of $100.00.
Marti Sharpe made a motion to adjourn the meeting which was seconded by Claudia Richardt. Meeting adjourned.
After the meeting was adjourned, the fun began. Our esteemed auctioneer, Wilma Gardiner, once again enticed everyone to bid on our donated items. From candles and coconut oil, to “Wookwood” and weeds, everyone found a treasure they never knew they needed.
