Welcome to our garden!
Autumn has arrived and that means
our new season will be starting shortly. We hope that you all had a happy
and healthy Spring and Summer. Due to circumstances beyond our control the
yearbooks are delayed
and will hopefully be distributed very soon. The board and committee members
busy over this very hot summer here in Florida, putting together a fun and
rewarding club year ahead.
The following will give you a brief outline of our Fall season so as to allow
you to plan accordingly.
first meeting will be October 19 and it will be at our normal meeting place, the
Bocchino Community Center
at 2369 NE Dixie Hwy, just past the arch at Langford Park. In addition to info
on the year ahead, our program for
that meeting will be will be on the Orchid’s growing, propagating, and
placement. The speakers will be
Jae McPhillips, Horticulturist and Sandra Barnett, Business Manager of the Blue
Water Garden Center in Hobe Sound.
The highlight of our year will be
the installation and dedication of a Blue-Star Marker at the Arch, honoring all
of the Armed Services on November 11. This will be a major honor for us and hope
you will all be able to attend the dedication ceremony.
We will have a carpool trip to
Mounts' Botanical Gardens following our November 16th business meeting. The
meeting will start early (9:45am) to allow for travel time. Hospitality will
provide coffee and bagels during the meeting.
The Holiday Party this year will be at the Dolphin Bar on December 8th, 12p.m.
I hope this gives you some idea of what to expect this fall from your JBGC until
yearbooks are received. In the meantime, if you
would like to have an electronic copy to store on
you computer, tablet, phone or e-reader (PDF, Kindle, Nook), please let me know
and I will email one to you.
Looking forward to seeing you all again!
