On Tuesday, September 2, the San Saba Garden Club held their first fall meeting at their newly renovated clubhouse in Mill Pond Park. A welcoming sight was the city’s recently built rock wheelchair ramp. Anna Wilson planted flowers in the new rock planter. The new window and shutters almost completes the exterior work covered by the grant from the city of San Saba. After the landscaping is completed, the clubhouse will be a welcoming sight for all who enter Mill Pond Park from Commerce Street.
The meeting was presided over by Nancy Nelson, President, and the hostesses were Carol Littlefield, Chairman; Nelda Edgmon, and Judy Brister. The hostesses provided the decorations of bowls of roses, delicious desserts and punch, iced tea and coffee. The members each brought a variety of wonderful salads.
Marsha Hardy from Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network provided the members with a most interesting program. Her network places rain collectors around the county and can measure rain to 1/100 of an inch. One collector will be placed in Mill Pond Park and seven members agreed to sign up for the program. Every day each person will report to a website any or no rain. This information benefits all the citizens of San Saba County. If anyone is interested in learning more about this program or would consider placing a collector on their property please call Marsha at 372-8570.
Our next meeting will be held on October 7 and our guest speaker will be member Aileen Roberts. She will tell us how to become a Master Gardener. If you are interested in becoming a member or just want to visit our meeting, please call Marcie Cooper at372-4319 or Nancy Nelson at 372-3955.
