EL-Calcutta Area Garden Club celebrates 70 years

EAST LIVERPOOL – The club held its annual picnic at Thompson Park on July 25 with 22 members, 1 new member, and 1 prospective member attending. This year marked the 70th anniversary for existence in East Liverpool.

There was a brief business meeting with discussions regarding The Fairy Festival, planned for 2015.

Lin Wells, chairman for the festival, discussed anticipated events and Linda Zeigler, fundraising chairman, discussed ways to generate funds.

Those in attendance enjoyed a beautiful covered dish picnic supplied by members.

Doris Musselman, Mary Beth Gill, and Lisa Chronister served as hostesses. They each made beautiful, unique centerpieces with a “woodsy” theme which were then raffled for prizes.

The next meeting is 11:30 a.m. Aug. 22 at the Peter Metrovich Center, Calcutta.

The club is still in need of submissions for the Yard of the Month.
