June is here. We now look forward to a very active summer season.
George Miller, our May speaker, presented a very informative/beautifully photographed talk on “SAVE A PLACE FOR WILDLIFE”, capturing the essence of nature with the emphasis on preserving it. Thank you Judy Mangina for making your German “Hoe” available for purchase to our members. To those of you who brought plants for our Plant Exchange, “gracias”, and to those of you who adopted them, enjoy, enjoy. Dolly Peralta, once again, thank you for coordinating refreshments.
The Lilac Festival was a huge success thanks to the tireless efforts of Kathy Fortner and John Mayer. We all, too, benefited from Reggie Mosser’s coordination of our Los Jardineros Lilac Booth - filled with all kinds of goodies and activities. We thank Ace Hardware for donating the plants.
