Just a Mere Garden Club discusses daffodil planting, recycling

October 8, 2013

Dorothy Warren hosted the Just-A-Mere Garden Club for its Oct. 1 meeting. Dottie Williams assisted her mother in welcoming guests to the Warren home.

The devotion by Elsie Jackson presented a young boy’s view of God, and she followed her remarks with prayer.

“Landscape Design for Patios” was Judy Honeycutt’s program. She emphasized that planning is key to any landscape design. She advised to plan for focal points which will add interest and will accent one’s home. Equally important is to plan for the future, as to what the landscaping will look like in time to come. She added that potted plants allows for versatility in such a space.

Routine business was conducted with President Sybil West presiding at the meeting. Plans are made to attend the District VIII Meeting at Pinehurst and a dinner theatre at Northwood Temple in Fayetteville. Other plans are for the group to plant daffodils at Midway Middle School and Midway Elementary School and to have recycling activities with primary-age students. Members were reminded of the Litter Sweep Roadside Clean-Up and to save tabs from drink cans, box tops, and plastic caps for redemption or recycling.

Recipient of the hostess gift was Sybil West, who received a meal certificate in the drawing.

The 22 members read both the collect and the motto during the meeting.

Afterwards, members enjoyed refreshments consisting of congealed chicken salad on lettuce, crackers, oatmeal cookies, toasted pecans, candy corn and soft drinks.
