The Memorial Garden Gets an October Facelift

Back on October 14, twelve garden club members pulled themselves out of bed early and worked on both the Memorial Garden and the butterfly garden(at the library). They pulled out old plants, weeded and planted 30-35 new plants to make the garden look better now that the hot and rainy summer is over.  The Memorial Garden looks quite nice and is ready for the annual Foundation Memorial Service in early November after we place a few more plants.  Click the page title to see the photos.

Mosquitos and Us

At our March 16 membership meeting Cherrief Jackson, with Clarke Environmental Mosquito Control, gave a timely lecture about controlling mosquitos here in Celebration.  Florida is a good breeding ground for these insects and it takes a multi-prong attack to keep them under control so we can go out and enjoy the great outdoors. We need to be so very careful not to damage the natural resources around us and Clarke Control is working hard to keep both us and the environment protected. Cherrief gave a fabulous lecture, and we all left the meeting with a better understanding of how mosquitoes are controlled in Celebration and what we can do to take charge on own properties. For anyone who would like …

On Thursday, January 27 the club had 15 people travel to Leu Gardens for a look at the vegetable and pollinator gardens.

The weather was great for this moving ceremony.  The Garden Club supplied a wreath honoring our fallen service men and our own Marge Hudec gave a very nice speech presenting the wreath to the town.  Thank you Marge!!  And thank you other Garden Club members for coming to this event and supporting our veterans, honoring those that gave their lives in defense of our country and supporting Marge. July 4th events are cancelled in the town and our next …
