Co-President Sherry Bowie presided over the September 11th meeting of the Lake Placid Garden Club. 37 members and 7 guests were welcomed. September birthdays were recognized.
The club is meeting in a different venue this year and this year members may bring their own lunch or order the lunch selected by the hostess committee.
There were several speakers. Our High School Scholarship winner, Malak Haifa, expressed her thanks for the scholarship and brought a cake to show her appreciation. Our Wekiva Campership winner, Cordelia Bemis, was very enthusiastic about camp and showed many of the items she learned how to make at camp. Our program speakers, Darlene Phypers and Danielle Dom, described the Ag Venture program held every year for the 3rd grade children in Highlands County.
One new member was introduced and welcomed to the club.
During the business meeting, the 2019-2020 budget was approved and chairmen gave committee reports.
