CONGRATULATIONS JULIE BARNES WINNER OF THE DISTRICT IX PERENNIAL BLOOM AWARD
We, in our Garden Clubs have been privileged to have long time members who, like the faithful
perennials in our gardens, have made our clubs grow and bloom with their continuous support of
our goals and objectives. Serving as officers and chairmen over the years, their love of gardening
has planted many a seed for garden club programs and events, while their enthusiastic leadership
has inspired members to nurture these seeds into successful bloom. In grateful appreciation for
their years of support, a PERENNIAL BLOOM AWARD was presented to Julie Barnes, and a tree
or shrub will be planted in their honor.

IGC CHRISTMAS AT SHANNOPIN COUNTRY CLUB
October 23rd program "boss" Kate Coleville headed us to the Tree Pittsburgh greenhouse at 34 62nd street in upper Laweranceville. As you may recall Joe Davish, from Tree Pittsburgh, came to our May meeting and gave us a crash course in tree planting and pruning.
The smell of Autumn is in the air, the leaves are falling and our
gardens are producing their final display. Time to get outside and
enjoy the season! If you have the chance, now is a good time to divide
your perennials for the Plant Sale! Plant them in pots, label them and
then bury them in the ground. In the spring you will know exactly
what you have!
Kate hosted another successful outing, this time to Tree Pittsburgh. I
hope you were able to join her. It is amazing what an unwanted piece
of property and some ingenuity can produce!
We have been invited to share in Greybrooke’s Golden Anniversary
Celebration on Nov 13th. Be sure to let me or Greybrooke know you
plan to attend. They would like an RSVP by Nov 8th.
Share the Season,
From the President:
