President, Lisa Howard held a brief business meeting in which she asked the club to consider adopting a portion of our highway in the City to keep trash picked up. The club voted to look into the adopt-a-highway program and to become involved as litter is an ongoing problem on our highways. The Harrogate Garden Club will also initiate a Kids Count Project in a local School for environmental awareness. Each child in the class selected to participate will decorate a clay pot and then plant a seedling provided by our county forestry service.
Theprogram for the meeting was given by member, Alice Robertson, on holiday design.
A Christmas Throw was presented to Howard as a thank you for her leadership of the club in 2005.
