Forest Hill Garden Club
Sep (2020-21) (FHGC)
It was in February of this year that the Garden Club had a program of "Hats by Kathleen Kelley". Big attendance and a great tea table followed the very successful program. That was the last time we all were able to be with our friends due to the pandemic. The March program "Community Service" was cancelled. The cancellation of the April program "Architecture in Forest Hill", followed. From March on, all meetings were held via zoom. The May Strawberry Social has become part of our fond memory. But in May, via zoom, all new officers were duly installed for the 2020-2021 year. And so the summer is passing and hopefully you are having a good time enjoying family and perhaps seeing some friends while staying safe.
Of course part of staying safe and healthy is, doing a little work in your garden for exercise. For the first time this year I had planted my tomatoes (Stupice) amongst my roses. They are food! and water for sustenance. It is a little tricky and prickly to work and now, to harvest my tomatoes. But they represent a joy of success. It is not too late for you to put tomato plants into the ground. Sloat nursery or Home Depot have them, just find the sunniest spot in your garden.
And so we are coming upon our new Season at the Forest Hill Garden Club. Unfortunately, a sit down luncheon to begin the year in style, is out of question. So, at the Board meeting on Monday, September 7th, we will decide on how to proceed with replacing the sit-down lunch by bringing box lunches to some of our members who live alone and are socially isolated due to the virus.
If you would like to receive a box lunch, and you don't get out of the house and live alone, please give me a call. All deliveries will be made by Board members on Monday, September 21, 2020, around 12:30PM. As we all need to stay apart, there will be just a few board members working to prepare the lunch boxes, wearing gloves and masks, outside in the garden of the clubhouse.
We are so fortunate to live in our great neighborhood with neighbors and friends, all wearing masks and keeping the distance to stay safe and healthy. Keep in touch with your friends and give me a call, AND NOW WE ARE GETTING READY TO START THE NEW SEASON AT THE GARDEN CLUB!
