Lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse

01/06/2020 14:20

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.

President's Comments

President Kate Colville

Dear Gardening Friends,
A mere two weeks ago, on the day of our originally scheduled plant
sale, I watched as snowflakes fell and clutched my coat tightly to me
as a braced myself against the cold blustery wind. It turned out to
be a BLESSING, in a way, that our sale had to be rescheduled until
June 13th. This past week offered us many beautiful days, and while
many of us are tired of being cooped up inside with the continued quarantine, we, as gardeners,
always have a place of beauty and peace where we can retreat, tend, and enjoy. A great group
turned out to clean up David Councill Park for our first work day of 2020, last Tuesday, and it
felt good to get our hands dirty while catching up with friends - after being apart for far too long.
I am pleased to announce that there WILL be an Ingomar Garden Club meeting on June 3rd at
10:30 am in Linda Womsley’s front yard. The new club officers will be installed, and we will discuss
details for the plant sale. We are not yet able to meet back at the church, so for now, we will
be meeting outside, with our masks, keeping a safe distance from one another, and we will have
PLENTY of hand sanitizer for everyone! . We ask that each member bring a bag lunch, drink
and chair. In the event of inclement weather, our backup location will be a large covered pavilion
at Janet Eck’s church (St Thomas in the Field’s in Gibsonia). Those members who do not yet
feel comfortable coming together for the meeting will be able to join us online via ZOOM, an
online group meeting space. Please let me know if this is something you are interested in.
I’m crossing my fingers for good weather on June 13th for our plant sale. Although we will not
have the annuals at the rescheduled sale, with your help, we hope to have a good number of
perennials and craft items to sell. Please be digging and dividing! We will have an online flyer to

share as well as a write up advertising the sale to be posted on Facebook and Nextdoor pages
around the community. We need everyone’s help to spread the word!
As we creep into summer, and the temperatures warm, let us commit ourselves to making our
little corner of the world more beautiful in service to others in our community. From the
planters at Passavant hospital to bring a smile to the lips of the patients, families, and medical
staff who have been working so hard, to David Councill Park, and Edith’s garden at the library,
which we hope will open again soon.
I miss you all, and look forward to seeing many of you on June 3rd!

Down to earth and diggin’ it,

Kate Colville
