Gardening Team– Our next project will be the cleanup at Pinewood School Memory Garden on Mon. April 14th at 10AM. We will be meeting in the parking lot. We will rake up the little bit of leaves and spread 10 bags of mulch.
On April 26th, the men from the LDS church in Pollock Pines will do a day of service for the Community Center and the Community Garden. They will be replacing the gate and rebuilding planter boxes. These is an interactive event for them and expect help from the people that have the plots in the garden as well and some of our garden team people that have volunteered.
The Dogwood Garden Club has two plots which we plant and donate vegetables to the local residents in need.
May 6th at 10AM, we will do a final clean up at the library. The Schultz’s will be planting the entrance to Sly Park Lake either at the end of April or the beginning of May.

Many thanks to Carol McBride for hosting our April meeting; the poppy seed cake was delicious!
The members present decided meeting once a month was unnecessary and that any business could be handled at the crafting meetings every other month.
This means the June meeting at Jeri Hartman’s home and the August meeting at Marilyn Johnson’s home are cancelled.
It was also suggested that during the summer our meetings should be held in the afternoon as many of us are involved in swim aerobics at 10:00 A.M., four days a week. We will finalize these changes at the May 13th crafting meeting.
The May meeting will be at Marilyn Brown’s home where we will be making pot people. We discussed the availability of small pots & switching one craft project with another. As we are all responsible for our own supplies it was decided we didn’t need to switch the projects. Supplies needed for the project are 21 pots of varying sizes, (your choice of sizes) twine, large washers, other materials you wish to use for hair, clothes, faces, etc. Nanette has a drill and will bring it to make holes in the pots.
I will be researching where we might get a deal on pots and will let everyone know if I find a great price somewhere.
A new project was introduced by Carol for sewing crafters. Snap purses made from measuring tapes which can be utilized for everything from craft trinkets to makeup to medications!
See you all on May 13th at Marilyn Brown’s home!
Nanette Lewis, Judy Cooper, Tami Lee
