Garden club to refurbish area
The April meeting of the River's Edge Garden Club of Toronto was held at the home of Ginny Popson with nine members in attendance.
Members made pounded leaf prints, a technique used to transfer leaf and flower imprints onto paper and fabric by pounding them with hammers.
Ruth Sutherin, president, led the business meeting with members answering roll call by naming their favorite herb. Melva Cooper gave a devotion entitled "Springtime."
Reports were given by Popson, secretary, and Betty Stewart, treasurer.
The members discussed refurbishing the plant areas at Newburg Landing. Stewart, Mary Bilchak and Sutherin will form a committee to choose plants and lay out a garden plan for the area with the objective to make it more manageable for the club members.
Because it will take more than one meeting to prepare and plant the areas, the members agreed to meet on May 5 from 9 a.m. to noon to begin preparing the area and then complete the work at the regular meeting May 10 at 6 p.m.
Goldie Smurda will be the hostess for the May 10 meeting.
