Blue Bonnet Garden Club

In October the members of the Blue Bonnet Garden Club had a creepy, crawling good time learning about the good and bad bugs found in gardens.

It was interesting to learn that of the millions of insects in the world less than 2 percent are considered harmful! The members were introduced to the Integrated Pest Management method or IPM, a nationally accepted practice of pest control that reduces impact on our environment, saves money and reduces pesticide use.

This imperative knowledge for gardeners was brought to the attention of the club by Master Gardener LaDonna Stockstill and her husband assistant, Arthur Stockstill. There was a lively game of Bug-Go Bingo played to help learn to distinguish the various insects by physical characteristics.

After the  program, hostess Dorothy Stockstill and co-hostesses Doris Liggett and Trell Taylor served the 16 attendees an array of delicious refreshments. There was chicken salad, served with an assortment of crackers and chips, a beautiful bowl of colorful fruit, cheese and cherry tomato picks stuck into a pineapple, and an assortment of grapes and nuts.

The refreshing punch was an orange concoction befitting the month of Halloween.

The business part of the meeting was led by President Doris Liggett. She brought the members up to date with our financial status, reviewed the pledges to Meals on Wheels, the Buddy Pack program, and the Food Bank.

She also passed out a current membership list with addresses for the member's notebooks. When all old and new business was concluded the meeting was adjourned until November.
