June 16, 2016

 President Everett Munroe called the June 16, 2016 meeting of the TRGC to order at 12:05 P.M. Everett thanked hostesses Josie Esposito, Ethel Gerity,Mary Ann Hauser, Brenda Kramer, Phyllis Teeson, and Ginny Roesler for a beautiful luncheon at Enders Island.

Everett welcomed the following guests who joined the club for the luncheon:

Evelyn Widham, Claire McCarter, Christina Taylor, and Mike Nauer.


The reading of the minutes of the May meeting was waived. A motion to accept the minutes as presented was made by Jerry Theiler and seconded by Pam Atkins. The minutes were unanimously accepted by the membership.


President’s report:

Everett Munroe informed the membership that he and Pam Atkins are diligently working on flower show planning.


Phyllis Cushing shared a tip for extending the bloom of Peonies: pick when the bud is large and feels like a marshmallow; seal in a ziplock bag & place in the refrigerator. When you want a fresh bloom, take one out and it will open. Buds will keep up to 1 month in the refrigerator.


The meeting was adjourned at 12:15 PM.


Respectfully Submitted

Mary Ellen Hagen, Recording Secretary
