UPCOMING EVENTS
Mark your calendars for the following events:
Fall Show at Furney’s – Oct 30 & 31 and Nov 1 (with set up on Oct. 28, 1 pm. Bloom Prep. Oct. 29)
Awards Banquet at Angelos– November 12.

PLANT CULTURE and SUPPLIES: – The September meeting will devote time to the care and feeding of the blooms as they develop. Place supply orders for specific items with Gary Budzeak by Tuesday September 6th. With possible rain or showers consider your sheltering options for September as we move to the latter part of the growing season.

GARDEN TOUR & PICNIC – We had 8 members attend the tour and a few more joined the picnic @ Gary’s. The Japanese Garden at the Arboretum was splendid, except for the absense of one previously arranged docent. There were many seldom seen plants. We then visited Ronnie Elliots and saw his hundreds of mums all looking pretty good, though he did have a couple of Christmas Tree mums…. The fare at Gary’s was excellent – brats, chicken and burgers and a usually fine assortment of salads and deserts.
