CMG meeting Thursday, June 15th!

Gardeners and Friends,

Don't forget our Claybank Master Gardeners meeting Thursday at 11:00 at Hoppergrass Restaurant. 

A bonus--Thomas Agee will be with us to speak about the history of our Claybank area and why we're named after it. 

Also, about the vote for new officers: our current President and Vice-President are willing to stay in those jobs, unless someone else wishes to take over. In that case they will gladly step aside. We also need to vote for a secretary, or ask Irene if she will continue.
