Fascinating talk by Chris Kincaid about trees within Osceola County. It certainly showed us all how important it is to have and to look after trees of all shapes and sizes.

November 13 2021 Founders and Veterans day parade The garden Club managed to walk in the parade this year as well as doing their living flag. This year it was filled with Petunias. Barbara and Marge gave the Garden Clubs tribute to the Veterans.
Our first face to face meeting with a touch of Zoom.
Fred and Leslie Bartok and Dave and Tricia Alesbury worked in the Memorial Garden today and divided plants from the main bed and placed them around the sign to soften it. Take a look at the photos – we think it looks good! Many more people are visiting the Memorial Garden and are all appreciative of the efforts of Garden Club. Thanks to Rita’s watering efforts, the transplanted Tabebuia tree is flourishing and has flowered well this year.
Garden Club presented the living flag filled with red and white petunias to the Veterans ceremony in Founders Park. Tricia gave a short speech and asked veterans to collect a plant to thank those who have served.
Shari Clark, President of Florida Bat Conservancy gave an illustrated and fascinating talk on bats. What amazing creatures they are! She brought a live bat for everyone to meet and corrected a lot of myths surrounding bats during her talk. How wonderful it would be to have bat boxes in Celebration instead of constant spraying with pesticides. Many communities throughout Florida have achieved this with Shari’s help.
