On October 16, 2014, members gathered in a garage on a rainy morning to plant 94 amaryllis and package 600 paperwhites. There will be a second planting when the final order arrives. The planted bulbs will be distributed at the November meeting. Thanks to all these hearty volunteers.
To encourage photography and to highlight our members talents, The NEW Photo Committee of the Worcester Garden Club will be featuring a seasonal Photo-of-the-Month taken by a member. This months image, web friendly, was submitted by Julie Crowley. To take part in this wonderful showcase, send your photos to Penny Dewar. The committee's first instructional program, which is full, will be "Learning More about Our Digital Cameras." It will take place October 17th from 9:30 am to 1:30 am. Instructor is Guy Biechele. And don't forget to explore the new photo tab on our website with guidelines (upcoming) and information about future opportunities to show your work!
