Colonial Garden Club members met recently in the home of Gail Houle on Fernwood Court to discuss their plans for summer beautification projects. Katherine Frazier, club secretary, acted as co-hostess for the event.

A luncheon — fresh fruits, veggie wedges, cheese trays, crackers, breads and dips, cold cuts, condiments, cake, brownies, tea, lemonade and spring water — was served.

The business session followed an opening devotional offered by Jane Baker, chaplain. Carol Ann Franklin, club president, urged the group to continue assisting Perry Memorial Library with the upkeep of the patio and surrounding landscape during the summer. Several volunteers stepped forward.

Members were reminded about the need to elect a new president and the resuming the “Yard of the Month” community project, both to occur this month. Plans for a trip to the Arboretum in Chapel Hill, which took place May 8, were also discussed.

To conclude the meeting, members conducted a workshop where they assembled floral arrangements to be used on luncheon tables at the Vance County Senior Center during the summer.
