Club notes — June 19

Encanto Garden Club

Encanto Garden Club met June 8 in Melrose at the homes of members Jeanne Augenstein and Lori Frazure.

Friends and neighbors accompanied the Master Gardeners through the raised vegetable beds, ground covers, flowers and bushes. Winding paths showcased various plants, which survive and thrive in this harsh southeastern New Mexico climate.

Refreshments were enjoyed while lively discussions could be heard regarding the care of more fragile plants and the use of plants which can take anything that Mother Nature dishes out.

Club members voted to donate to the Red Cross for tornado victims and door prizes of gardening books and plant pulleys signaled the close of this educational and enjoyable garden tour.

The Claud Rainy Day Extension Club met May 25 at Muffley’s Back Door. Plans were made for summer get-togethers and arrangements made for sorting of donated materials.

The next meeting will be at 1:30 p.m. June 22 at the Prince Coffee Bistro.

Music will be provided by Matt Carter.
