We are pleased to announce Kathy Vaughn is coming again to our meeting with a “make it and take it” project.  Kathy is a very talented floral arranger and is employed at  Lesher’s Flowers Inc .   She has 35 years experience working at Lesher’s and we are so delighted to have her.

FLOWER ARRANGING HIGHLIGHTS:  With Kathy’s guidance we made holiday arrangements and they turned out wonderful. We had almost perfect attendance and everyone went home pleased with their beautiful flowers.  A special thanks to Kathy for such a fun meeting. We will definitely invite her back again.


Heimos Greenhouse Open House:  November 22, 2009, Sunday. We will be touring the Poinsettia Open House at Heimos Greenhouse in Millstadt, Illinois. Members can invite friends and family to this free event.  In past years we have had a great time.

HEIMOS GREENHOUSE OPEN HOUSE HIGHLIGHTS: A group of members came for a fun and informative tour of the greenhouse.  They open their greenhouse once a year to the public to show off their fantastic display of poinsettias.  Our guide Art knew everything there is to know about growing poinsettias!  You could see poinsettias in every color and shape available.  Their store was open and many members took advantage of the opportunity to come home with beautiful plants for the holidays.  The free cookies and beverages were also appreciated.  Thank You Heimos for such a nice visit!

Our Christmas party will be Dec. 20,2009.
