The All Seasons Garden Club met March 7 at First United Methodist Church in Seymour.
When members arrived, they were asked to sign get well cards for members Darlene Groseclose and Kathy Rush, both suffering from falls resulting in broken bones. A card also was sent to member Ann McAfee for encouragement.
The members enjoyed a pitch-in dinner of salads, side dishes, western sandwiches, desserts and drinks provided by hostess Nita Bridges.
After refreshments, a short business meeting was held by President Jean Barkman. It was discussed that members bring greeting cards next month to provide for the card committee and stamps will be provided by the club.
Barkman thanked Sandy Koevener, who made the new books for the 2022 year, and the members were asked to proofread for any corrections necessary.
Rita Wischmeier gave a treasurer’s report, and Becky Hackman informed the group of inactive member Jeanette Chastain’s mother, Marlene Schuerman, who is at Hoosier Christian Village, and the status of Connie Lovins, another inactive member, whose husband was having health issues and surgery at an Indianapolis hospital.
The members then participated in fun crafts, demonstrated by Martha Wilson, of making flowers from strips of material and also from coffee filters dyed with food coloring. She showed the group a wreath she decorated with the fabric flowers in spring colors.
A guess how many candy pieces in a jar game was played with prizes going to Shirley Lewis, Koevener and Rita Wischmeier.
Shirley Lewis reminded everyone that March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and urged everyone to get a colonoscopy.
Bridges had information on programs at the Jackson County Public Library of pollinators in our backyards and also April paintings.
Hackman reminded everyone of the April 4 meting to be held at her home with Kathy Cunningham as co-hostess and announced a guest speaker.
