Civic Garden Club of San Carlos-May 2016

Message from the President

Everything is coming up Roses! We are now in the wonderful month of May. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the bees are buzzing. This is one of my favorite months.

The Club trip to Filoli last month was a great success and the gardens were in full spring bloom. Please view the pictures taken by Renate Kemper on pages 3-5. What a glorious way to spend a day. We are so fortunate to have an estate of this size that is open to the public so close by. The gardens are such an inspiration.

We have two special days this month, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day. Each is celebrated for a different reason, but neither are to be forgotten.

Our Plant Sale held April 23 was very successful. A heartfelt thanks to our members who donated plants and to those who helped at the Sale setting up, serving customers, and cleaning up afterwards. See page 6 for pictures taken the morning of the sale.

Don’t forget the tour of John Ward’s Garden coming up May 6. See driving directions on page 2 for those who are driving on their own rather than carpooling from Casa.

We will be voting on four officer positions for next year at our General Meeting May 20.

I hope to see you there.

Joyce
