Cedar Mill Garden Club News

By Barbara Cushman, publicity chair

The November 15th monthly meeting of the Cedar Mill Garden Club will involve a hands-on project, the construction of candle ring wreaths, presented by long-time members Phyllis Danielson and Ruby Warren.

\We meet at 9:30 am for the business meeting with the program following at 11:00 a.m. after a short break for coffee, treats and social time, Our meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Beaverton Resource Center on the corner of Allen and Hall Blvd (12500 S.W. Allen Blvd.), The exception is in December when we meet on the 2nd Wednesday for the Christmas potluck at the Valley Presbyterian Church beginning at 11:30p.m.

Cedar Mill Garden Club members are currently busy dividing and potting plants to nurture over the winter for our annual plant sale. If anyone has plants they would like to donate please bring them to the November meeting or contact Garnet Ascher, club president at 503-292-4480. This year the sale will be held May 4th and 5th, from 8a.m. to the Historic Young House on Cornell Rd. We will also establish and maintain an herb garden there for community enjoyment.

We provide funding, instruction, volunteers and thus the opportunity for Vose School kindergarten children to participate in floral design and environmental programs. We also donate money toward the preservation of our State Botanical Gardens. Our newest project, a partnership, involves contributing and helping to plant daffodils at Shute R/Hwy #26 en route to the beach this October. We also traditionally construct two gigantic wreaths for the Cedar Mill Library at Christmas

The Cedar Mill Garden Club was organized in 1946 and joined the Federation of Garden Clubs in 1947, so this is our 60th anniversary year. We currently have 31 members and dues are $15.00 per year.
