Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the LGCGC Executive Committee has been monitoring pandemic statistics closely to decide if we can start to meet again. With cases rising again in our area, we are going on a month to month basis for holding regular meetings.
In July, we met at the home of Kim Cavarretta. Members brought box lunches and their own beverage. Fun to finally get together again!
August: Rainy weather cancelled our luncheon at the home of Teresa Rescorl.
September: Luncheon was rescheduled. Again the weather forced us to move the meeting to Harrisena Church. Members brought a bag lunch. The business meeting covered many important topics, future events, and projects.
October: Fall Plant Sale, Ruel's Garden,748 Ridge Rd. Members have volunteered this summer to weed and help maintain the extensive Ruel gardens after the sad passing of long-time member Eileen Ruel. the gardens are now being downsized and Roger Ruel has offered to donate his perennials to the Garden Club.
