Thursday Action

I’ve been quite busy with a wide range of tasks so have become tardy with some blog postings.  This one is from yesterday which was a very productive day.  Nice shot above of our “Gothic theme” in front of the building which will be removed next week because of our bulb planting project (tulips!) in that space next Saturday, October 21st.  We had a great day with grounds staff of Larry O., Larry H., Cindy, Bobby K. and myself.  Volunteers included Ron R., Kathy, Eva, Marilyn, Suzy, Stan, Kristin, Firefighter Cathy, Kay, Jenny, Dr. Gredler, Rollie, Dick H., Jim, Dave, Vern, Steve, Ron Y., Ron P., Maury and many others!  The gardens still are maintaining late color but our shift to Holiday Light Show (HLS) preparations continues!  The Bower City Garden Club had their meeting over at the Horticulture Center which was a lot of fun too!
