The club was federated in 1954. Meetings are the first Wednesday of the month, 10:30 am at St Johns Church, 311 Cumberland Rd., Pittsburgh, PA.
Annual Picnic July 3rd
Not every backyard looks like a park but our hostess, Eileen Miller has grandkids so besides beautiful gardens to enjoy we also had swings and a slide.
Following the club meeting lunch was provided by members who turned out to be gormet chefs. Marie Kazmierczak and her crew set up inside as rain was predicted. (but didn't) Our traditional plant auction with our traditional auctioneer Julie Barnes, ably assisted this year by Barb Oswald, was fun as usual. There is nothing to compare with "the good old summertime"
I am writing this on the longest day of the year – yes, Summer is truly here

engaging speaker who shared information on all phases of his project.
Another worthy trip! Thanks Kate and Pat. (Coincidently, I met a
gentleman who works in security at the Atlanta airport, who attend that
Are you ready for our July picnic? I am! The picnic is a great time to bring
a friend. Remember your chair, carpool if you can, and plan for a day
outside. Don’t forget your auction item – make it something worth bidding
on – that makes the auction more enjoyable for all. Call if you have
question on directions, access or just because.
I am heading out to the garden.
Share the Season,
