Garden Club: Holiday Gift Bags & Party

The garden club had its meeting on Monday, November 16. It has been a tradition with the garden club, to put together gift bags for the Dana point seniors that do not have the luxury of leaving their homes.
Our thanks to Carol Kuhn, Melanie Wilcox and Francine Stout, for spending the time to shop for all the essential things that go into the gift bags. These include, postage stamps and all the necessary toiletries, sweetened with chocolate and savory items. Twenty-five seniors qualified for the gifts this year. The garden club works with the Dana Point Senior Center and the Meals on Wheel program that help deliver the gift bags.
The garden club’s get-together always includes a luncheon. Our thanks to the hospitality team of Marlene Lynch, Marjean Hanson, Joann Beattie, Nancy Tinnes, Ruth Levitan, JoAnne Webb, Carol Yocom and Grace Glatt for a delicious spread.
Since it is the season to enjoy the time with family and friends, I would suggest that we let the garden welcome the rains from El Nino. Our garden can survive a month without our attention! I would like to take this opportunity to thank our President Jerry and Linda Koppang, Gunjan Anand and all the members of the Garden club executive team, as well as all the volunteers that help make this club such a great experience.
On behalf of the Garden Club, I want to wish the Niguel Shores family a very healthy and joyous holiday season, with the coming year full of good health and happiness.
Next Meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 21, for our annual Holiday Party. Bring a $10 garden related wrapped gift for the Gift Exchange.
Finally, Who is not hungry at Thanksgiving? The turkey because he is already stuffed!
