We Need Plants and Leaders for the April 25th Plant Sale
The LOW Garden Club's April 25th plant sale is fast approaching and we are in need of event chairs and plants!
If you are interested in becoming a leader within the club, helping organize an event like this is a great way to dip your toe into the leadership pool! If you're interested, contact Linda Ticomb directly--her email address and phone number are in the Yearbook.
And, if you've been putting off pruning some of your plants, do it now! Root those clippings, start those seedlings and then donate them to the plant sale.
Have you got something you'd like to see posted in the next issue of our newsletter, Garden Thyme? Then remember the 23rd! That's right, the deadline for copy with every newsletter is on the 23rd of the month (with the exception of January when there is no newsletter!) So, if you want something placed in an issue, get it to Teresa Gregson before the 23rd. All ideas, photos and copy should be sent to Teresa@BeesAndTrees.biz

Make the club even MORE fun...get your friends to join
We've reached 93 members for the new/current membership year and are still looking to increase that number! The more members we have, the more fresh ideas, the more fun and the more helping hands!
Have you got a friend you'd like to have join? Membership forms are currently being updated and will soon be available!
Be sure to check with our 1st Vice President of Membership, Mary Sims, for more information on when the forms will be complete where they will be available.
Remember, it's up to all of us to make the Garden Club even more fun and relevant in our lives!
We have a Photographer!
Many thanks to Al Rico, husband of new member Eva, for agreeing to serve as the LOW Garden Club photographer! Al has already provided the club with a ton of amazing shots from the October meeting and the Christmas Tea!
Although Al has a proven keen eye, he can't be everywhere all of the time so please remember to take your cell when you attend Garden Club events--particularly smaller group meetings--and take pictures of what is going on around you. We love action shots and posed shots just try to keep it fun and in focus!
