PHGC July 2020 Newsletter
Good July everyone! We had a Board meeting on July 21 at the Arboretum. Ten garden club members attended. We social distanced and most of us wore masks.
Sadly, because of pandemic restrictions/cancellations there have been no “regular” meetings and activities have been curtailed. However, there is some news!
We have gotten four new member this year: Cheryl, Christine, Carolyn, and Cathleen. Welcome!
Our August meeting, Art in Bloom, has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for next year.
The September meeting has also been cancelled. Instead we will have a Board meeting on September 14th at 2:00 pm in the Arboretum. The meeting will be open to all members. Bring a problem plant or a mystery weed!
Pamela reported that 39 bags of mulch were spread at the Arboretum, three Bottle Brush Buckeye shrubs were planted, and that she would like to plant a Mountain Laural (PA state flower) at the Oakcrest entrance (but would need to protect it from the deer). She also reported that several other fences are to be installed but estimates still need to come in.
Charlene and her helpers have been doing a great job maintaining the Let Freedom Ring Garden, as well as the Library grounds. Charlene reported that as she was working on LFRG, a passerby donated $15!
Linda suggested we put markers to identify plants. (I think that’s a good idea!) Does anyone want to investigate garden markers that we could use for LFRG? Pamela thought copper ones.
Linda has been making a Garden of the Month album. She reports that people are excited when they win! (Thank you, Linda!)
