The San Saba Garden Club met at 11:00 a.m., February 3rd at the clubhouse in Mill Pond Park. President Nancy Nelson brought up the thought that clubs throughout the city were honoring members and it was agreed that Clione Rochat should receive the Service Award for her many years of sacrificial giving of her time and talents to the club. The honor will be given March 12, at the Civic Center.
Sharon Hayes researched the club’s history and presented her findings in an enjoyable and informative essay. The club is 73 years old. There is more about this in a separate article.
The program was presented by Bill Leudeke. He gave hints and expert advise on gardening in this area, in fact he has a book out, Gardening in the Texas Hill Country. He gives hints on such things as chiggers, how to use eggshells in your garden, lawn care by seasons, getting rid of poison ivy, deer resistant landscaping, pruning, and he even has a cedar fever relief recipe! That and much more was enjoyed by the garden club.
The hostesses were: Sandra Parks and Sharon Hayes.
The next meeting will be the first Tuesday in March at 11:00 a.m. with Carolyn McDowell speaking on butterfly gardening.
