Our first Garden Club of Ocean City, NJ meeting of the season can be described in one word Delicious! The Salad Luncheon is always a big hit and with approximately 35 salads to chose from—not to mention the wonderful desserts—no one walked away hungry. We had 36 in attendance which included one new member as of the meeting.
We opened our meeting with the Garden Club Prayer, enjoyed our lunch and caught up with fellow members on our summertime activities. Our yearbook was distributed to those present and officers and the executive board were introduced. Each member was also asked to stand up and introduce themselves to the group.
Members who were not in attendance will receive their Yearbooks at our November 1st meeting.
October Field Trip!
Next on the agenda, were the details of our October 4th field trip—Cape May County Zoo—with Daisy Bodaer, landscaper and chief gardener, as our guide for the tour. Lunch will be held at the Avalon Links Restaurant, the lunch cost is $17.00. Check your email for a link to RSVP. Carpooling will be available.
Horticulture & Artistic
The Horticulture (Fall Roses) and Artistic (Fruits of your Garden) pieces brought by various members were a beautiful addition to our meeting.
Christmas & Gardening…
Again this year, the Club will decorate one of the Christmas trees in the Atrium of the Ocean City Free Public Library. Please dry your hydrangea—or your neighbors’, with permission of course—to celebrate Gardening and Christmas. Kay Reilly provided tips for drying and storing the flowers. If you are drying flowers, the tentative plan is to bring them to our November meeting. You’ll be updated on the specifics closer to our meeting date.
We hope you had a great time at our first meeting and will enjoy our upcoming meetings and events!
See you in October at the Cape May Zoo!
