Albany Club News:
After a June picnic at Chappell Collins’ farm and a break in July, we resumed our normal schedule in August with a program featuring Henry and Lisa Little of Silent Sentinel Garden in Brookhaven, MS. They have been exhibition and garden judges for 16 years and specialize in spiders and miniatures.
September brought Dan Trimmer of Water Mill Garden in Enterprise, FL. Because of a new grandbaby, his wife, Jane, stayed home on this trip. Dan gave us a lot of information on growing daylilies. We had an auction with his plants and then our annual auction, sale table and covered dish luncheon.
Also, in September at the fall Regional in Macon, the Albany Club donated $4000 to Region 5 and $2000 to Valdosta to be used for the National meeting in 2010 in Valdosta. These were proceeds from monies the club collected all year long toward the Regional we hosted in May.
In October, Rad Yeager with Stripling Irrigation Research in Newton, Georgia, an extension of the Georgia University System, gave a program on sensors and technologies for irrigation management. He brought samples of the equipment they use and showed pictures of the research area.
On November 15th, Wayne Taunton and his wife, Jo, of Country Lane Daylilies, Sparks, GA, gave a program on their introductions and seedlings. It was a beautiful collection and they brought some of their plants to sell to the members. He is the president of the Valdosta Hemerocallis Society.
We discussed having a spring plant sale, open to the public, as a way to introduce our club to a wider range of people. We might be able to do this in conjunction with a sale the Master Gardening group has each year.
We are also going to start using a point system to encourage attendance and participation among our members.
