Brigantine Garden Club

Everyone is cordially invited to the first meeting of the season on Monday, March 5, at the Community Center. Refreshments are served at 6:30 p.m.; the meeting starts at 7 p.m. We will begin the evening with a presentation by Laurel Leigh, which will be a brief overview of the history of the Victorian Walled Garden at Kylemore Abbey in Connemara, Ireland. Leigh will share her photography through slides taken last summer. Leigh is a bed tender and active member of our club who participates in almost every event. Thank you, Laurel, for sharing your experience with us. Non-members are welcome to leave after the presentation, but perhaps you might like to stay and find out what we are all about.

We do not charge dues. Many members tend beds, but if that is not for you, there are plenty of other ways to participate. We do need a few bed tenders and people to water the sea wall pots this summer. If you are interested but cannot attend the meeting, call 266-3685 and leave a message. Someone will get back to you shortly. Bed and pot tenders, be sure to email your coordinator to let her know if you will continue to tend your bed/pot this season. Thanks for all of your hard work in the past to make Brigantine bloom.

We are looking for one or two members to chair the Secret Garden Tour this summer. This is one of our most popular events and fund-raisers. There are a lot of Indians to help out; we still need a Chief.

If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. Hopefully, the lamb will come at the end since Easter is early this year.
