Who can resist a delicious cookie?  Members entered their best cookies and many cookies to share. The contest was judged by three Home Economics professionals.  The prize winning cookie was made by Carol M. who  won a Meyer Lemon tree which was well deserved!

Cookie Contest

Susan Petro presented a comprehensive program enhanced by attractive photos of how to attract birds to our gardens.  One of the interesting facts she mentioned was the different types of berries found on shrubs and how the berries higher in fat are left to the end of the fall season by the birds which helps with their nutrition during the winter season. As always her talk was well attended and appreciated by all.

Holiday Party

Joanne S hosted the holiday party at her lovely home. Members brought and enjoyed delicious hot and cold appetizers, main courses as well as desserts.  Joanne and Joe had their home beautifully decorated for Christmas and everyone was in the holiday spirit.

Thank you to Geraldine S, Betty G and Betsy T for designing and planting the YMCA window boxes on behalf of the Garden Club.


Volunteers from the Garden Club read and selected a letter of request from a family at People to People, they shared the list with other volunteer members who shopped for the holiday gifts specific to that family.
