Warren Garden Club hears presentation on the Three Sisters

Photo submitted to Times Observer Three sisters — corn, beans, and squash.

Vice president Priscilla Breese welcomed members to the July 18 meeting of Warren Garden Club at St. Joseph Catholic Church.

Louise Dyer, past president and flower show Judge, gave a presentation on the Native American Legend of the Three Sisters. The Iroquois believe corn, beans, and squash are a precious gift of the Great Spirit and the well-being of each crop is protected by one of the Three Sister Spirits. Native American snacks were provided during the lecture with a dessert of brownies made with black beans.

The Garden Club Cambridge Assisted Living committee helped residents make summer flower pinwheel decorations, which can be used as hair ornaments, rings or a corsage.

The Municipal Gardens, planted by Warren Garden Club in June, are doing very nicely. Committee members were thanked for the ongoing summer maintenance. Summertime flowers beautify the city.
