Garden Club plans for upcoming plant sale

The monthly meeting of the Alpena Garden Club was held on May 6 at the 19th Hole. The room was at full capacity, as the snowbirds have returned.

Attending as guests were Sandy Donajkowski and Amanda Rondeau. Jeanette Vrenderburg was welcomed as a new member.

The group discussed the success of the Let’s Get Growing event at the Alpena Mall.

The members welcomed and thanked Carol Dodge Grochowski representing the Friends of Rockport. The presentation was very interesting, telling of the success and many improvements of the area.

The club is having a plant sale at a new location, the ACC Greenhouse on Woodward Avenue across from the APlex. The sale will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 23, and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 24. Tomato plants, herbs and perennials will be available.

Serving on the committee were Ann Speaks, Cathy Knechtel, Marie Gilmet Dully and Diane Gagnon.

The next meeting will be at the Senior Citizens Center.
