Gardening's not just for girls
Cheers to health, happiness and gardening this day
and everyday throughout the year.
Two of the most vital elements for plant life are sunshine and water, working together to keep plants thriving. The Garden Club has been fortunate enough to have found our sun and water, in the form of our two Co-Presidents, Cindi DeWeese and Jeanne Brantman. For the past three years, through the pandemic and beyond, these two women have worked together to make the Garden Club grow into a dynamic group. Cindi and Jeanne harmonize together, with Jeanne leading the meetings and Cindi directing the Board meetings and both providing moral support to each other. Together they have found a balance, of sun and water, key to a successful garden and club. During their tenure the Garden Club has raised several thousand dollars, used on many beautification projects throughout the village. Thank you ladies, for your time, leadership and dedication to the OHCC Garden Club. As we look forward to 2023, we welcome Linda Slayton, as our new President. Linda is well prepared to take over the presidency, having served as our Vice President in charge of programs for the last three years. The sun is shining bright on the future of the Garden Club, let’s hope for some rain for our gardens.
