Membership Report by Anne Tetreault- We remain at 88 members for 2022.
Update on club activities by Judy
Ideas for upcoming speakers for 2023. Great suggestions came from the members on what they would like to hear and see for speakers so Judy will be working on that as well.
Elections in November – please consider putting your name forward for our executive. One member has come forward to stand on the executive. We have about 3 meetings a year and it is not a big time commitment so we are needing 2 more members to stand as directors so please consider it.
Debbie brought in Free Foxglove plants for anyone who wanted them.
In regards to the heavy tomato contest that Carson Arthur has the weight to beat is 2.6 lbs. Kathy Bozin showed us a picture of her 2.2 lb tomato but not quite big enough.
