Clay Potters Garden Club

Clay Potters Garden Club met Sept. 9 at the home of Debbie Lehman. Club president Bernie Zeller opened the meeting by leading in the pledge to the flag. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved and the treasurer’s report was given.

Cindy Keesler reported on West-Central District Annual Meeting and Flower Show on Sept. 7 in Sedalia. The new district director is Judith Rogers. She has lots of great new ideas and goals. Many of her goals Clay Potters are already doing. She is going to award $50 to any club doing all 12 of her stated goals.

Lehman, Judy Manning, Terry Peterson and Zeller went to Little Sisters of the Poor on Aug. 23 to tour the lovely grounds. Michele McGeeney goes every other week with her “Therapy Dog” to visit the residents.

Keesler gave an interesting program with lots of pictures on the Baseball Plant. It is a succulent from Africa.

Mildred Roth and Keesler recently were honored to be entered in the “Honor Book” of the Federated Garden Clubs of Missouri by Bernadette Zeller.

Roth gave a demonstration on making an arrangement to be used on a table. It was beautiful, using all flowers she had grown in her yard.

Lehman then gave a program on bats. She had several pictures, lots of information and a bat house to put on the ways and means table.

Cass Regional Hospital Plant Sale was Sept. 29.

Our next meeting will be Monday, Oct. 14, at Benchmark Health Care. Keesler is hostess.
