Spring sprung early at the recent February meeting of the Town and County Garden Club, transforming the venue at the Presbyterian Church Education Building into a vibrant oasis of floral splendor! Attendees were greeted by a breathtaking display of spring blooms, meticulously arranged in an assortment of delightful blue and white teapots and pitchers.

The Garden Club extended a warm welcome to its newest member, Betty Crenshaw, as she attended her inaugural meeting. Her presence was met with enthusiasm, and anticipation ran high for the contributions she’ll bring as a valued member of the club.

During the meeting, Linda Brandemuhl provided an update on the Smokey the Bear poster contest, highlighting the recent awards ceremony held at Davidson Elementary School. With Smokey himself in attendance, the event celebrated the creativity and talent of young artists who participated in the contest. Her report shed light on the community’s commitment to environmental education and the promotion of fire safety awareness.

A captivating program on Indoor and Outdoor Plants was expertly delivered by Nancy Kesselring and Jo Ann Allen, esteemed members of the Lafayette County Master Gardeners. Ms. Kesselring, who has served as the president of the Master Gardeners, and Ms. Allen shared invaluable insights and gardening wisdom with eager listeners.
The beautiful spring ambiance, courtesy of our gracious hostesses Mary Lou Jones and Teresia Edgar, added to the charm of the occasion, ensuring a delightful experience for all. Kudos to Six Peas Catering for tantalizing our taste buds with their culinary delights!

A heartfelt round of applause is also due to Patsy Humphreys and Zandra Walker for their skill in crafting the exquisite floral arrangements that adorned our gathering. Their artistry truly elevated the beauty of the evening, leaving a lasting impression on all who attended.
