Woodland Garden Club sports new banner

Members of the Woodland Garden Club in Wintersville participated in an outing May 2 in Columbiana for lunch at the Dutch Haus Restaurant and to tour and shop at the Catalpa Grove Farm and Market and the Van Pelt Farm Market.

The club met June 6 at the Shorac Family Center in Wintersville where Nancy Hukill and Joyce Griffin served as hostesses and used pansy bouquets as decorations. Paula Nutter gave the inspirational message with roll call answered by naming a birth month flower.

President Verna Smolinsky presided at the business session, announcing that the club had earned a 100 on the program book from the state Ohio Association of Garden Clubs. The Dillonvale Rosebud Garden Club will host the open meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday with the program on “Gardening in Small Spaces.”

Future spring and fall regional meetings will rotate with each club taking a turn hosting. The Woodland club will host the fall regional meeting Oct. 12 at Starkdale Presbyterian Church.

The club made plans for the weeding and planting at the garden club building at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.

The club’s new banner was revealed by Ann Sage and Juanita Welsh. It will be displayed during the flower show at the fair and other club events.

Welsh gave a presentation on the care and use of succulents in the garden scape. She said they make beautiful container gardens that can be taken into the house during the winter. Succulents can be used in many applications, including using them in a wall arrangement or in wedding bouquets, she said.
