Barracks Row 2016 Fall Festival

The Barracks Row Fall Festival is a great event for our neighborhood, and this year our Club was there, meeting and greeting neighbors and passersby, talking about our Club in particular and gardening in general.

Jennifer Cate organized bright colored posters and lots of fresh mums for the booth and lined up volunteers. Visitors to our booth were given a gift bag with a daffodil bulb to plant in their garden, along with a flyer about our Club and the coming year’s meetings and events. At the end of the day, a sign up sheet was filled with names and email addresses for people who wanted more information about our Club!

Jennifer and Joan Fallows were on site all day, along with the other Club volunteers who did 2 hour shifts talking to the public. According to Joan, "As I listened to conversations, I was struck by the gardening expertise and knowledge that the club volunteers have to offer. We have so much valuable garden wisdom in our garden club. Members deserve a pat on the back for sharing it!"

From butterflies, to shade, to soil, to chipmunks, the questions kept coming!

Many thanks to the Club’s volunteers at the Festival, including Mary Blakeslee, Lazlo Bockh, Ida May Mantel, Joe Purdy, Katherine Anderson, Susan Thompson, Vira Sisolak, Stephen Bauer, EJ Truax, and Marian Wiseman. And special thanks to Jennifer and Joan for organizing and setting up our presence at the Festival!
