Greetings, Fellow Gardeners;
Happy Plant America. Spring is coming soon.
I am looking forward to the planting season, and have already received the seeds I ordered.A couple of flowers I am trying this year are Gilia and Phacelia, I have not tried them before.
The Mobridge Garden Club's Convention Chairmen, Alyce Johnson and Dorothy Wheeler are busy working on the schedule and it will be in this Messenger. We are celebrating 75 years and want to make it fun for all and hope many of you can come. The Club had applied for the Plant America Grant, but did not get this year. There were over 400 applications, maybe next year.
The National Gardener's article on "Libraries and Garden Clubs-A Novel Idea" is a neat idea. We had it for a program in February. and will be working with our locallLibrary and children.  I hope more Clubs will work to get children excited about gardening.
Be sure to make plan to come to Mobridge, April 27-28th. Our National President, Nancy Hargroves, and Regional Director, Jackie Watts will be attending our Convention.
We have a ovely Red, White and Blue quilt and accessories that will be there and several gorgous silent auction items.
A reminder that the membership contest winners will be determined June 1st this year.
See you all soon.
Virginia Sandmeier.
