Haddam Garden Club Meetings

 

The Haddam Garden Club typically meets at 10:00 a.m. on the Second Wednesday of the month from September through June at the Haddam Community Center.  Exceptions to this are in November for our annual meeting which begins at 11:00 a.m., December when we meet on the first Wednesday to make holiday arrangements, and for field trips which sometimes can't be scheduled on our regular meeting day.  Some meetings are open to the public.  A small donation is greatly appreciated.  We do not meet in July and August.

There will be a short business meeting followed by Torrison's fine gardening expert, Colleen Kinyon who will talk to us about curb appeal with quick fixes and using smaller perennials. The meeting will be in their indoor showroom with large garage doors that will be open to allow for lots of airflow.  There will be seating for 25 and they provide water, coffee and restrooms. There is plenty of parking in front of their building.  They require masks of course, but hopefully with vaccines available to most of us you will all feel comfortable with this situation.  

RSVP to Deb Karpf so our host knows how many attendees to prepare for.  This meeting is open to members and membership applicants only!
