Garden club conducts meetings at library

The February and March meetings of All Thumbs Garden Club were conducted at the Seymour Public Library.

President Nancy Fleming and vice president Ann Windley served as hostesses for the February meeting.

During that meeting, the competition among Indiana garden clubs for the number of trees planted by members during the year was discussed. The state president is promoting this project to increase the knowledge of how trees affect people’s lives.

Janet Hensen, information services assistant at the library, presented a program about Wowbrary, a new Internet program for library patrons. As a subscriber, one may order and checkout books, movies and other materials from home or elsewhere and download them to a personal device.

Peg Ackerman and Suzi Judd served as hostesses for the March meeting.

During the business meeting, Jane Lucas reminded members the annual planting day will be in May at Southern Indiana Center for the Arts. The club has volunteered to be responsible for flowers at the arts center since it opened in 1991 on Seymour’s north side.

Club members will serve as hostesses for the National Garden Club Convention on May 15 in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Garden Club of Indiana’s annual convention will be April 27 to 29 in New Harmony.

The club’s next meeting will include a tour of the garden at Seymour-Jackson Elementary School.
