Foxglove Garden Club
The final meeting of the 2006-2007 year for the Foxglove Garden Club was held June 5 at the home of Larry and Victoria Scriggins, who provided beverages and dessert following the "brown bag" lunches.
Cory Belton, president, opened the meeting and introduced guests Lin Vance, Mary Banks Nichols, Jay Russell and Barb Campbell. Welcome was also given to Susan Winkler, a new member of the club.
Updates on committee activities were given by committee chairs; appreciation was given to all those who came to help with two work days. One day focused on Fairfax Green and the other on the German Cemetery; both days were very productive and improved the looks of the gardens with the spreading of donated mulch and weeding. Two awards are to be given to two local residents for their contributions to the beauty of Morgan County through their gardens.
The next official meeting will not be until September when the 2007-2008 year starts. However, a field trip might possibly be offered in August.
The meeting concluded with a brief history of the Scriggins home and gardens and a talk on daylilies given by the hostess.
