Hill, Dale Club holds meeting

The Hill & Dale Garden Club meeting was held recently.

As the group’s original plans to tour the Green Heron Farm were cancelled, members met for lunch at New Beginnings in Sugar Grove. President Peg Stino welcomed everyone to the club’s third meeting of the year and then led members in the Pledge of Allegiance and read the devotions.

There were 14 people attending including two guests. A thank you note was received from the family of Irene Berg and also a couple of cards received from members. Updates were given on members who have health issues and are unable to attend. The group also signed cards to send to Sherry Walter’s after the death of Walters’ mother.

As Garden Therapy at the Rouse Home can not be held because of the pandemic, it was suggested arrangements be made to have them delivered. The activity director at the Rouse thought that would be a great idea. Stino and her sister Irene had painted all the cups.

The Sept. 23 meeting will be held at the Wiltsie Church. A decision will be made Sept. 23 on meetings for October and December.

Members met the speakers at the Sugar Grove Library herb garden. Annie Clement spoke on herbs, edible weeds such as plantain and their benefits. Karla LoPresti spoke about teas that can be made from the different mints, thistle and herbs and served samples.
