Fall Board Meeting News from Ardith

Saturday, July 14th was a pricing party for the Trash and Treasure donations received so far.  Jennifer C (FH),  Chairperson, was  hostess.     Anna B., Jean G., Ardith  P. and Jennifer priced the items for your buying pleasure.  There were pictures, puzzles, scarves, belts, costume jewelry, handbags, lamps, kitchen items, vases, and numerous Christmas items which we hope will find new homes with garden clubbers attending the Fall Board Meeting.   More items are needed  Contact your club president if you have donations.

Remember you can visit our vendors, the Silent Auction table and the Trash and Treasure table, even if you do not register for the Fall Board Meeting.  
So gather your garden club friends together, come to the Durham Hilton, shop, listen to the Men in Black ensemble, enjoy a libation and view the honor floral arrangements done by members of the Piedmont Judges Council.  This is another way to discover what is happening in your North Carolina Garden Club and District 9.  You can even be piped in for dinner, have an enjoyable meal and hear Scott Mason, The Tarheel Traveler and WRAL personality,  discuss his adventures  in North Carolina's out of the way place and the memorable people he has encountered.
  Bruce Wright, noted Raleigh piper and  well-known instructor, will pipe us into dinner and bring in the color guard. Bruce has been piping for more than 25 years, not only at the Highland Scottish Games, but at numerous private and public events
The 100 Men in Black ensemble will entertain at the President's Cocktail Hour with a wide selection of music.  They will perform standards, soul, doo-wop, etc.  for our enjoyment

  Mark Weathington, Assistant Director and Curator of Collections for the J C Raulston Arboretum, will be the guest speaker at Monday morning's brunch.  Mark will discuss his work in creating and caring for one of the largest and most diverse landscape plant collections suited for use in Southeastern landscapes.  Mark has also generously donated some plant rarities from the Arboretum's collection to our Silent Auction
