I just spoke with Peg. I am happy to report that she came home on Thursday, and she sounded wonderful. I gave her everyone's best wishes. Keep her in your prayers.

The club would like to extend thanks to the anonymous donor who gave us the canna bulbs; they will be distributed to interested bed tenders for use in their plots. (Call Debi P. if you want some.) This is a great donation to our club.
