In anticipation of an early arrival of spring, the Colonial Garden Club recently conducted a plant exchange at the home of Joyce Odom on Lakeview Drive. 

Club members brought with them a variety of young plants and seedlings — including early- blooming tulips, pansies, roses, gardenias, daisies — for a drawing.

Upon arrival, members were served beverages and a dessert plate by Odom. A devotional on the subject of love was offered by Jane Baker, club chaplain.

After the secretary’s report (given by Katherine Frazier), Carol Ann Franklin, club president, read a message from Area Christians Together in Service, acknowledging the club’s assistance to the nonprofit in its efforts to help the needy during Christmas.

Upcoming project were discussed, including the creation of decorations for luncheon tables to be presented to the Senior Citizens Center on Garnett Street during spring and summer, as well as excursions to Pine Knot Farm near Clarksville, Va., later this month and the Chapel Hill Arboretum during the spring.
