The Wayside Garden Club’s May 15 Meeting was held on at Hospice. There were eleven members and three guests present. Our guests were Sophia Skorupa, Colleen Waddell and Stephanie Zmuda.
Members answered roll call by telling why they brought these plants to the sale.
The May minutes were approved as corrected. This was followed by committee reports. Sue Quigley thanked those who helped with the spring grooming of the uptown flower bed. Cindy Scohy, a former member, has been helping with the monument beds and the club wishes to thank her.
