Soup’s On!
Our Hospitality Chair, Julia Lyons, is busy organizing a hearty meal of soups and stews for our next meeting. She will be providing some of each for your dining pleasure. GHS will also provide the drinks for the lunch. We ask our members to provide the other companion food items including salads, vegetables, breads and crackers, and desserts. If you are unsure of what to bring, please contact Julia at 706 265-3328 or email her at lyonsfarm@windstream.net.

Silent Auction
We will again hold a Silent Auction at our February 7th meeting and we need donations to make the auction a success. Please bring garden-related items to be auctioned – no used or “white elephant” items please. And, oh yes, be sure to bring money to bid on all the great items we know we will have for the auction. Dormant plants are welcome, of course. Proceeds from the Silent Auction and our other sales activities go directly toward obtaining the best speakers possible for our programs. Having these outstanding speakers, both local and nationally recognized, provides us the opportunity to meet and hear the experts in person and to ask them for answers to our own personal gardening questions.

Magazine Exchange
Do you have any garden related magazines you would like to share with other members? Bring them to our February 7th meeting. We will again have a magazine exchange. The November magazine exchange was a huge success with many magazines brought and not a one left by the end of the meeting. How does it work? It is simple and easy. Just bring the garden magazines you no longer want and would like to share. Place them on the exchange table. If you see magazines on the exchange table you like that were brought by others, feel free to take them - as many as you want.
