Please note the special time for our October 19 meeting. As this is a special meeting at Kent East Hill Nursery, we are meeting at 3:00 p.m. We will have a program by Jason Billingsley about great plant choices for the fall.
I will pass out yearbooks to any members who have not received their yearbook/directory. We will also get new name tags.
Since we can't meet in-person at Brookdale Foundation House yet, we arranged this special meeting for an almost-outdoor venue for a safe gathering. The weather forecast looks good, but dress warmly.

We welcome members' help maintaining the area around the blue star marker at Celebration Park. Just stop by when you have a little time with a spade or hoe and clean it up as you are able! We have some geraniums to plant there. We also have wax begonias to plant at the Federal Way Historical Society. Contact Judy if you can help with the planting, as she has done so much for us this spring. Relieving her of some tasks would be very welcome!
Members signed up for times to help so we didn't have too many at any one time. All were diligent in wearing masks and gloves and maintaining appropriate social distance.
Thanks to all who helped.

We will also plant the wax begonias in the Pollinator Garden Bed. We will do some hoeing and tidying up, so bring your favorite garden tool and a tub.

Our club will be bringing 4-5 floral centerpieces. Let Diane Goss know if you can bring one of these.
See the Chinook District web site or your copy of the Chinook Winds for the Flower Show schedule. Let Debbie Angel know if you can do a design. We need Novice entries for Class 4 - a design using spring flowers and entries for Class 1 - line-mass design. Also Crafts: a decorated garden hand tool or a Mother's Day corsage.
See the Horticulture schedule for ideas of what you can bring from your garden. You can bring up to 8 specimens. Look around at what looks good in your garden. If it is not listed on the Horticulture schedule, it can fit in the "Other worthy specimen" category.
