The Daisy Garden Club and the Daisette Youth Garden Club held a joint monthly meeting June 16, with Edith Carroll serving as hostess.

Vivian Bullock led the devotion. The group sang the club song and repeated the official club collect, and afterward Bullock read several thoughts and a poem by Alma B. Eymann entitled “Weeder’s Thoughts.” Then, club members sang “O Beautiful for Garden Green” and then read “A Garden Club Prayer” in unison.

After the devotion, a meal was served, and Andrew Jackson blessed the food.

Barbara Carroll, Daisy Garden Club president, conducted the business session. She welcomed youth club members and their parents.

Henry Floyd presented a program on planting a garden. He displayed pictures of his vegetable garden, explained caring for plants and distributed a planting guide.

Club members sang “Happy Birthday” to Roscoe Hargrove, Shirlene Brown and Carolyn Green.

Velma Steed thanked the hostess.

The youth closed the meeting by repeating the club pledge.

Daisette youth in attendance were Dominique Anderson, Navin Chavis, Samiyia Floyd, Shea Jones and Nyesha Miller.
