YORK – The York Garden Club met Monday, Aug. 26, at 2 p.m., at Chances R.

Hostesses Deanna Warnken and Sherita Harlow decorated the tables with fresh flowers from their gardens.

Eighteen members answered roll call by naming a flower that started with the first letter of their first name.

Ann Kirkpatrick reported she had sent three birthday cards and one “thinking of you” card in July and one birthday card in August. There was no historian report.

After discussion the group voted to purchase a bench to be placed in Foster Park with installation by the city. A plaque will be purchased by the Garden Club.

Following the business meeting the club enjoyed a garden show made up of vegetables and flowers from the members’ gardens.
