President's note

Dear Members,
Our exhibition under the chairmanship of Ruth Miller at the
Chamber of Commerce's Fall Festival was a big success. The
festival at Mainescape grounds had 740 visitors. Many of
them visited our booth in the tent where Ruth Miller, Niki
Lawton, Dorothy Carey, Lynn Cheney, Carla Evans, and
Bente Sivertsen took turns greeting everyone.
When a lot of other vendors had already run out of food,
the Blue Hill Garden Club still had delicious pumpkin loaves
to offer which was home baked by Carla Evans.

We had 5 new members sign on and I would like to
welcome them! They are: Carol Gregor, Janet Schlesinger,
Yolanda Stein, Elsa Swenson Teel and Terri Titcomb.

I hope that you can all meet them at our next event on
Tuesday, October 29 at 2 PM when Heather McCargo will
talk about Maine native plants and how to replace invasive
species with the natives.
Sincerely,
Ute Eichenberg
