Summer Happenings

Although we don’t have formal meetings during July and August, we still manage to get together and have some fun.    While we talk about our gardens  and share ideas for the upcoming season, we manage to make a few decisions, as well.

In July we had one of those gatherings at Susan Canada’s house with our new Co-Presidents, Betsy and Jill, supplying the hot dogs and other members bringing the rest.  A plus for this day was to see Susan’s lovely gardens, a real treat.

 Here are some pictures from that day:
