For their April meeting, the members and guests of the Plant & Dig Garden Club of Cedaredge visited the City of Delta parks shop and visited with parks supervisor Tony Bohling and his two co-workers, Veronica and Cindy. Tony showed two beautiful videos of the various city flower beds and pots along Main Street and the spectacular center medians along Highway 65 throughout the previous years. Veronica and Cindy talked about the planning, planting and maintenance of the various areas each summer. Club members were all awed by the fact that these two ladies are the only ones involved -- that they do it all. As fellow gardeners, we were more appreciative than most of the efforts of these two remarkable ladies who make Delta's streets and parks so special. Each member was given a potted dahlia to enjoy in our own gardens this summer. That was a very special surprise. We all thank Tony, Veronica and Cindy for making us so welcome and for sharing their knowledge with us.
Club members cleaned up and planted the flower bed outside the west entrance to Pioneer Town on May 12. We will maintain this bed throughout the summer for the enjoyment of all who visit this historic site.
The club's May meeting was held May 20 at Horizons Care Center where we planted four large pots in the courtyard prior to our business meeting. This project is undertaken by all the garden clubs in the Cedaredge area. We are proud to be a part of this joint effort. It warms our hearts to know that the residents, visitors and caregivers can enjoy the fruits of our efforts throughout the summer months.
In June, our meeting will be at the home of Joan Chambers. She will give a program on the many uses of groundcover in our gardens and conduct an onsite tour of groundcover growing in her own garden.
All who are interested in gardening, friendship and community service are invited to join our club. For further information you may call 856-3897 or 970-901-9360.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
