The South County Victorian Garden Club is gearing up for another exciting year of activities, some of which include field trips, garden walks, Historic Village clean up, plant sale and crafts, according to the club Secretary Nancy Smoker. They meet the fourth Monday of the month, March through November. Those interested in joining can call the following officers: Julie Burke at 269-746-4730, Shirley Heath at 269-778-3369, Nancy Smoker at 269-806-4985 or Teri Clark at 269-778-9948.
One of the early spring activities is helping to clean up the grounds in the Historic Village. It is set for Saturday, May 21st, from 9:00 am to Noon. Followed by a Sloppy-Joe lunch in the pavilion. Everyone is welcome especially if they bring their own tools.
The club’s only fund raiser is its annual plant sale. The weather has turned perfect so it’s a good opportunity for members to pot up their plants to have them ready to sell by June, Smoker says. The sale is June 4th at the community pavilion. Members will have bigger sized plants that sell well and are easier to organize than the smaller pots. Also, plants that have been potted a few weeks in advance are preferred by customers. There will be plant sticks in each pot to label the variety and price. They will also have garden related flea-market items.
