ARCANUM – In late March, members of the Arcanum Garden Club met to assemble and deliver 15 Easter Baskets to residents in the Arcanum Area. They were greatly appreciated by the recipients.
The April meeting was held at Montage for lunch. After the meeting they adjourned to Miller’s Flowers for a walk thru and explanation of the labor involved in getting the annual flowers ready for sale to eager “planting hands.” The greenhouses were showing many new items for spring.
The May meeting is their designated time for planting the pots around town. Plantings are at the corners downtown, on both east and north bridges, library, Veterans Memorial Stone (at the park entrance) and at the Generation Square locations. Stop by and see the effort the ladies have put forth to enhance the Village of Arcanum.
A very lovely Ladies Tea Luncheon was set up in the home of Abby Cutright for the June Arcanum Garden Club Meeting. Co-hostess was Sue Stammen. Various types of desserts were served along with the unusual teas for sampling. Abby had the home set up with tables, set with different settings of China. Who can resist tea served in a China Cup? They all felt so pampered. Members were asked to bring along their wedding pictures, since June is considered to be Bride’s Month. The interesting roll call was “What type of flowers were in your bridal bouquet.” Samples of the teas were sent home with the members for their continued enjoyment. A tour of Abby’s garden concluded the program for the day. Two new members were welcomed into the club – Evelyn Rentz and Connie Norris.
