Roanoke Island Garden Club plans first meeting of season

The Roanoke Island Garden Club will hold its first meeting of the 2021-22 season September 9 at 10:30 a.m. and will convene under a shade tree on the Great Lawn of the Elizabeth Gardens.

The program “Plants That Survived The Summer” will be presented and members are invited to bring some of their plants to share. Members should also bring a chair to use during the meeting.

The last order of business for the 2020-21 season was election of Executive Board members: Faye Lewis, president; Jaye Massecar, treasurer; Christine Dorsey, vice president; and Melva Garrison, secretary.  They were sworn in at the May end-of-season picnic held at the Old Swimming Hole.

In mid-May, the club was invited to provide an exhibit for display in Manteo’s Dare County Library for the month of October. Several members have been discussing and planning an exhibit to be set up September 30.

The club will also hold its Fall Plant and Yard Sale (date to be determined) and members are currently gathering their donations.

The Roanoke Island Garden Club will meet September 2021-May 2022, usually on the first Thursday of each month. Most meetings are held at The Elizabethan Gardens’ Odom Hall; adjustments are made from time to time. The club offers educational programs about all aspects of gardening and promotes a variety of community garden-related projects. Guests are welcome at the meetings and club membership is open to all interested gardeners.
