The choice for the IGC Christmas Luncheon was Narcisi Winery in Gibsonia. A little wine tasting was in order folloed with a delicious lunch and a gift exchange The "Pink Handbag" was passed on until next years' luncheon. In keeping with the true meaning of Christmas members brought food items to donate to the community food bank.

Dear Gardening Friends---With the artic blast decending upon us, we suddenly drifted into winter. Hope we have all finished putting our garden beds to sleep. I myself need a day or two of warm days to finish my outside chores. It is not winter yet so maybe we will still get warmer days. Enjoy this favorite time of the year and try not to think of gardening until after the holidays. Let's give our gardening minds a rest and wake them up again next spring.
Christmas is coming and for our annual celebration I am looking forward to our Christmas Luncheon on Wednesday, December 3rd at the Narcisi Winery. Hope a lot of us are coming to join the celebration. If you wish to participate in the gift exchange please bring a $20 garden-related Christmas gift. Please do not forget to put a nametag on your gift with your name on it. Meeting starts at 11:00 AM. We will have beautiful green centerpieces to raffle.
Enjoy and stay warm and do not get caught up in the holiday hustle and bustle. Wishing you the happiest of holidays and goodwill to all!
