The Mill Creek Garden Club thanks local residents for purchasing their flower baskets, and talks about the success of the garage sale, what's coming up this summer, and the installation of new officers.

We sold our Bloomers....every last one! Thanks to all who purchased our flowery baskets. By doing so, you helped schools in our area through our Giving Through Gardening Grants program. Bravo!
Who's our star, star, star of the quarter.....Julie Jacobson! Julie received our "Round of Applause" award for her super work ethic and her dedication to the MC Garden Club. Chairing our recent Garage Sale (made over $1000 for our Giving Through Grants program) Julie also earned the "most organized person ever" title. Way to go, Julie!! Cheers!
Shelly Johnson, Excursions Chair, is enticing us with a tour of the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery gardens on September 5th. Ann Hunt, Grounds Coordinator and Master Gardener will be our tour guide. If you wish, wine tasting will follow with a trip through the gift shop. Contact a member for an invitation. Come have fun with us!! And watch out for that peacock!
Cheers and applause galore on May 14th as our new officers were installed. President: Lila Johnson; 1st VP, Michael Crawford; 2nd VP, Lisa Gerould; Secretary, Linda Lunt; Treasurer, Mary Carlson. This bunch of tulips along with our many "chairs and committee heads" is already planning surprises for next fall including a razzle-dazzle, super-duper "30 Year Anniversary Party" celebration.
Plan ahead for an exciting year which begins with our first meeting on September 10th, 2013, at Shawn O'Donnell's Grill and Irish Pub. Our move from the "Club to the Pub" was a success.
