Making the Community Bloom
The Gouverneur Garden Club met at Sylvia Lake on August 3, 2017 for a Summer Picnic. Twenty members and guests attended. The event was hosted by members from Sylvia Lake: Judy Butz, Joan Jackson, Faye Lockwood, Mary Jo Whalen, and Lea Dickson. The picnic was held in Lea's garage, which was decorated for the occasion. Jon Jackson was the grill master and Joe Laurenza was the photographer's assistant.
Featured table centerpieces were created by Joan Jackson, in North Country-handmade pack baskets, using flowers from Lea Dickson's gardens. Members at each table were challenged to name all the flowers in their table's pack basket. Every table passed with flying colors.
During the activity, members posed with garden-themed "props" and everyone received a copy of their table's photo. A business meeting was also held and a group photo was taken. The Garden Club warmly welcomed a new member, Missy Tersmette. Guests included, Linda Syrek, Shari Barnhart, Jon Jackson, Joe Laurenza, Lynne Brown and Nick.
Row One: Lea Dickson, Marilyn Scozzafava, Faye Lockwood, Judy Butz, Retha Brown, Joan Jackson, Irene Gardner. Row Two: Missy Tersmette, Helen Hartle, Kathy Bigarel, Mary Jo Whalen, Debbie Reddick, Amy Cook, Ruth McClure, Carol Venton, Chris Betrus, Terry Mullin, Barb Ellison, Sharon Villeneuve, Lynne Brown and Nick.
