September Message from the President

Thanks to DonnaRae Caccavo for getting us the Greenstone Barn to meet in. We wouldn’t have wanted to miss Gosia’s talk on the 2021 Herb of the Year – Parsley. It was lively and informational. She shared how they ate parsley every day in her native Poland. She explained how to grow it and its healthful uses. Then she demonstrated its culinary usefulness by serving us delicious Lebanese Tabbouleh. Thank you so much Gosia!


We were going to hold our food and clothing drive for the VETS this month but it was cancelled due to the fire. We will hold it at the November 5 meeting instead.


As you know, the fair has been cancelled. We’re going to attempt to hold our October 1 meeting at the garden, allowing for weather and disasters. We will also have our seed and plant exchange that month. Our speakers will be Cheryl Turner and Cindy Young on “Putting Your Garden to Bed”.


Be thinking ahead about an Herbal Gift you might want to demonstrate at our November 5 meeting. Also, be thinking about subjects for the 2022 Program Schedule. There are several months where we have a subject but no speaker, if you’d like to volunteer. Or feel free to volunteer to speak on something you are interested in or know a lot about.


If you might be interested in helping us run our little group and are interested in the President or Vice-President positions, please contact me.


Lastly, we discussed the Covid exposure at the September meeting. The Covid Triage Nurse at Marshall said we were very lucky. In the future there are a couple things we can do so we can continue to meet in person. First, don’t attend a meeting if you are ill or have been exposed to Covid. Second, show respect for your fellow members by immediately reporting any exposure to Vivian Abplanalp or Ada Brehmer who will send an email to all members.


I’m ready for fall, how about you?
