The Luray Garden Club was happy to welcome our two newest members, Nancy Boyer and Del Price. Amy Chan and Loree Fisher served as hostesses for the February 11 meeting. Gretchen Mulligan narrated a slide show of photographs she has taken during 2019 of the designs at the Shenandoah Designers Guild’s monthly meetings, pointing out elements, principles and styles of design and where in the Flower Show Handbook more information could be found.
The design for the month was Dear Valentine. Three standard size designs and one petite were submitted for judging.
Copies of “The Saved Seed,” by Brenda Moore were purchased by the Luray Garden Club and given to all Page County elementary schools and public libraries last fall.
In the spring of 2018, former elementary teacher and counselor, Linda Dudley and her granddaughter, Courtney who is studying to be a teacher, shared the book and hands-on seed activities with two 4th and two 5th grade classes at Springfield Elementary School and one kindergarten class at Luray Elementary reaching approximately 125 students and 9 adults.
