Happy New Year
January 8th the IGC Gals will head for the Longhorn Steakhouse to "break bread." While we are no longer doing the weed whacking thing we can still smell the roses via the seed catalogs. Let the snow fall...just helps us keep up our shoveling skills.
Time to take care of our little feathered friends. Will be sharing with you some of our favorite Bird Lovers Recipies and some prize photos of them.
Chris Hawthorn, through her tireless work of connecting us with many educational facilites in our area has made it possibel for IGC to enable the youth to compete in the National Garden Club Federation Smokey Bear Woodsy Owl Contest. We have students entering in all the catagories, Posters, Poetry and Essay, competing for the prizes. Members met and and selected from the many entries what we hope will be winners.
As I write this there is a blanket of snow on the ground, the
roads are clear and the skies are blue. I have a fire burning
in the fireplace and an evergreen decorated for Christmas in
the corner. That's what I was hoping I would see when I
opened my eyes this morning! Instead I have a layer of
leaves still covering my yard. Fall does go on for a few more
weeks, then we can welcome winter officially.
I'm looking forward to sharing the holiday season with you
at our luncheon at Shannopin Country Club. Remember to
bring a gift if you would like to participate in the gift
Kate has set up Lunch outings for January and February,

the month winner, garden admirer, or your mom/daughter
