2016 October General Meeting and Flower Show

Our speaker for the evening Wolfegang Bonham of Peace and Love Landscaping  told us about tips and tricks  to create an interesting and intriguing garden and he was so interesting that everybody hung on to his words. Lucy Valente, our President, also got our attention when she drew tickets for the door prizes.
