Garden Club

The Hughes Town & Country Garden Club met on November 17th at High Water Landing. This month’s hostesses were: Kendra Hayes and Sherry Dodd. Teresa Shannon gave an update on her attendance at the Flower Show Symposium she attended in Manteo, North Carolina in October. Teresa is already a Life Judge and is about to complete her Master. An interesting program was presented by Kendra Hayes on Herbs and Vegetables and Useful Garden Tools. The ladies were asked to bring their favorite garden tool(s) and share why it was their favorite and share some gardening tips. Everyone left with valuable information and a planter with special planting media and spinach seeds. Members also agreed to make their annual donation to the Food Bank in Hughes. The ladies enjoyed chicken spaghetti, green beans wrapped in bacon and brownies and ice cream. Door prizes of Amaryllis Bulb Kits went to: Melinda Akins, Holly Bacon and Teresa Shannon. ***
