Fall has arrived! The Mill Creek Garden Club had our first meeting of the season on September 9th and plans are falling into place for our next meeting on October 13th. Although there is still a little time left for us to enjoy the summer flowers in our gardens, you can tell fall is upon us by the chill in the morning air. The first frost will be here before you know it.

We have been informed by Paul Clampitt, President of the Mill Creek Country Club’s Board of Directors, that the country club’s financial problems have eased.

Clampitt said via email, “The members overwhelmingly rejected the idea of selling the club and since then we have been able to restructure our debt in such a way as to give us at least 5 more years to build membership.”
