Bay Village Garden Club elects new officers
The Bay Village Garden Club is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to inspire an interest in home gardening, to educate, to preserve nature, and to promote community beautification. The men and women of the club reside in several western suburbs. We are pleased to announce our new officers for 2016-2018: Kathie Roskom, president; Charlene Perkins, vice president of programming; Terry Appell, treasurer; Elaine Hoke, recording secretary; and Kari Eckel, corresponding secretary.
Our meetings are held on the fourth Monday of the month from September to November and January to May. This year we will be meeting at Bay United Methodist Church on Lake Road. We have several interesting speakers with topics ranging from growing chrysanthemums to creating edible landscapes. We will have the opportunity to tour a hydroponic farm and a herbarium.
In November we will have a hands-on workshop to create holiday wreaths and table decorations for senior citizens and cancer patients. We will also have workshops for members to create an Artisan Terrarium and in the spring, a container garden.
Our 34th annual Christmas Greening Workshops will be held on Dec. 7 and 8. Pictures and details about the workshops will be posted on our website soon.
