The Plant & Dig Garden Club of Cedaredge held its October meeting on Oct. 18. There was a full house including five guests (two of whom were spouses) who came to hear Arnie and Cathy Ogden's adventures as beekeepers. They relayed their many experiences, handed out packets filled with bee-related information as well as a packet of wild seeds, and helped us understand how we can, as gardeners, help protect these most vital insects. We had all looked forward to their presentation and were not disappointed.
Our November meeting will have us making Christmas centerpieces under the talented direction of Plant & Dig Garden Club member Barb Klein. Certainly, our homes will have wonderful new decorations for the holiday season this year.
Our annual Christmas party and potluck will be held Dec. 18. We will also have a "numbered" gift exchange which we all enjoy heartily. It is always full of laughs and surprises.
We have a new member, Barbara Rhoads, who found our club through the newspaper articles. We welcome her, as we welcome all women who are interested in increasing knowledge and skills pertaining to gardening. Our club is also dedicated to friendship and community service. If you wish to learn more, please call 856-3897 or 970-901-9350.
We wish everyone a happy and blessed Thanksgiving holiday.
