Join NGC in celebrating summer

The heat has arrived, and thankfully, so have the long summer months of vacations and time away with family and friends. With this being our last meeting until September rolls around, the members of the Natchez Garden Club would like to invite everyone to come out and celebrate this budding season upon us.

At 11 a.m. Thursday at Ellicott Hall on the corner of Canal and Jefferson streets, we will host our monthly meeting. This get together will feature our hard working junior gardeners and their fearless leader. They will present to us and our guests what they have been up to all year and maybe even show us a thing or two when it comes to gardening and helping our own plants beat the summer heat.

Afterward, we will have our installation of new officers for the coming year, as well. Of course, lunch will wrap up our meeting as it always does. This month, however, we will have a pot luck lunch featuring your favorite dishes and salads. Maybe we can even swap a recipe or two before running away to enjoy this beautiful summer weather.

Be sure to bring canned fruit to donate to the Stew Pot and personal hygiene items for the Guardian Shelter. With summer approaching, it is a good idea to give to these two groups to insure they have a pleasant and giving season.

Since you are in charge of lunch this month, there will not be a charge for attending this meeting. Also, you will not need to make a reservation. All we need is to see your shinning — and, hopefully, tanned — faces with your favorite dishes, salads or deserts in hand.

We look forward to seeing each of you before the summer gets into full swing and everyone heads off on vacations and fabulous sun-filled getaways.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Natchez Garden Club office at 601-443-9065, or email us at ntzgardenclub@bellsouth.net. Be sure to head over to our website throughout the summer for updates on upcoming events for the fall and winter months.

You can also like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, favorite our photos on Instagram, and re-pin any gardening ideas you see us pinning on Pinterest while you are out for the summer.

See you Thursday.
