Clay Potters Garden Club

Clay Potters Garden Club met Nov. 11 at the home of Judy Manning with 14 members present and two guests-

Ann Vering and Larry Dobson were our speakers for the evening.

Bernie Zeller, club president, 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.

Larry Dobson told us so much about his “Christmas Cactus.” He had many pictures, as well as a beautiful plant full of buds that was in full bloom at Thanksgiving. He also showed numerous pictures of irises growing in his yard of every color imaginable. He had a Powerpoint presentation of bluebirds and nearly 100 Kodac pictures he had taken as well. He also had lots of information about oak trees and how to start your own by planting acorns. He gave all of us several acorns to try our luck at starting our own Burr oak trees.

Our next meeting will be Monday, Dec. 9, at the home of Darra Simpson for a covered dish luncheon. We are reminded to bring an ornament to exchange, our favorite dish for the meal and gifts for the senior citizens’ gift bags.
