The Deer Creek Daisies met for their organizational meeting on Saturday, Jan. 21 at Our Place Restaurant in Washington Court House.
Typically this meeting requires members to drive on snow-covered roads to the destination, but not this year. It was a beautiful, partially sunny day that reached into the 60s.
The first meeting of the year consists of organizing calendars and each member picking a month to plan an outing for the club. With that done it was time to enjoy our breakfast and visit.
Connie Lindsey brought the photo albums she makes so members could all see the beautiful pictures and stories from the previous monthly outings. Members all enjoyed looking at the Lebanon Horse Parade and annual Christmas party entries.
Billie Lanman was the winner of the club’s Christmas card contest this year. Her card was chosen because it had a beautiful winter garden theme with a potting shed on it.
The February meeting will be hosted by Shirley Pettit. Date and destination to be determined.
The slower, calmness of the winter months is a great time to browse through the seed catalogs and magazines and start planning those vegetable gardens and flower gardens. Two of the local greenhouses websites are mcclishs.com and patchwork-gardens.com. They always have planting tips, and great ideas on how and when to plant.
The January meeting was hosted by Kendra Knecht and Jeanne Miller.
“May the New Year bring good health, happiness and many happy times with family and friends,” a spokesperson said.
