Come visit with Natchez Garden Club

Summer is drawing to a close, and the members of the Natchez Garden Club are preparing for a jam-packed fall of events and meetings.

The first meeting will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Magnolia Hall on the corner of Pearl and Washington streets in downtown Natchez.

Of course, lunch will be provided, and guests will need to call the garden club’s office by Tuesday to make their reservation for the lunch.

This month’s meeting will feature a program by Penny Daggett and Kathie Blankenstein.

They will tell the story of how the Natchez Garden Club talked Gorham into designing and producing the beautiful “Melrose” pattern of flatware back in the 1940s.

Blankenstein’s mother, Lillie Vidal Boatner, was the long time executive secretary for the club.

Using images from her scrapbooks, Daggett and Blankenstein will explore this and several other publicity feats Boatner and then publicity chairman, Harriette Dixon, accomplished to promote Pilgrimage in the early years of the club.

In addition to the program and business meeting, the members ask that all guests help in their community projects by bringing items to donate to two local and worthy causes.

For the Stewpot, please bring any pre-packaged cookies. For the Guardian Shelter, bring personal hygiene items.

As always, be sure to check Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the club’s website at natchezgardenclub.org for more information and a listing of our upcoming events for the fall.

We look forward to seeing everyone Thursday.

 

Jennie Guido is the publicity chairman for the Natchez Garden Club.
