Garden Club will no longer sponsor county fair flower show

Members of the Scott County Garden Club met for the first regular meeting of the year on April 18.

President Jeannie Compton began the meeting by reading the poem, “Gratitude,” from the book “The Gardener’s Guide to Life” by Criswell Freeman for a moment of meditation.

The meeting was called to order with members asked to “Give a Spring Gardening Tip” for roll call. Eight members answered with various useful ideas.

It was emphasized that despite some warm, spring days, it’s wise to be patient as late spring frosts and freezes are not uncommon in Western Kansas. May 5 is considered the 50-50 date for this part of the state.
