In lieu of the club's October meeting at the Glennville Garden Club Center, several members of the club are planning to attend the Oleander District Conference in Statesboro on Wednesday, October 5, 2022.
The guest speaker at the District Conference will be Campbell Vaughn, a renowned Master Gardener who lives in Augusta, Georgia.
The Garden Club members discussed their participation in the upcoming Glennville Rotary Club and Glennville Garden Club online auction that will be held October 5-8. As the club's auction item, the club will once again be donating its Baker's Dozen of a dessert each month plus one bonus cake, and members were also asked to consider donating an auction item of at least a $100 value. Each club member is asked to submit a check for $75 as their individual part in supporting the auction.
For several years, the Garden Club has been presented with a $6000 check for the club's support and participation from the auction proceeds, which is used for scholarships to seniors and other education/horticulture projects in the city.
At their September 8 Glennville Garden Club meeting, the club welcomed two new members, Al and Darlene Myers, who moved to Glennville from Pennsylvania in the past year.
Club Vice President Margaret Barnhill also showed fellow club members her curcuma lily, with several members taking a leaf, which can be buried several inches and will take root. This plant is not actually a lily but a member of the ginger family. Also known as Hidden Cone Ginger or Hidden Lily, this plant is native to Malaysia.
