Our first meeting of the fall took place on September 5 and was very well-attended. The meeting featured a presentation by Amanda MacLean on how members could use a messenger app to direct message each other. After a brief presentation, she adjourned to the back of the room to consult with members about issues specific to their devices. Nanette Longley and her Committee introduced us to our new web site and our new rack card-both highly professional efforts done on a shoestring and in record time. Four new members were in attendance and were introduced around. Bill Gleason got a round of applause for his beautification efforts at the Parish Meeting House, and the Sherburne Triangle. The meeting finished up with a discussion led by Deb Schneider of things to do in the garden this fall to prepare it for the winter.
On Wednesday, October 11, Dr. Richard Benfield, Professor Emiritus from Central Connecticut State University will be back by popular demand. Sponsored jointly by the Tyngsborough Garden Club and the Public Library, his presentation will take place in the Community Room at Town Hall, 25 Bryant Lane, starting at 6 pm. Dr. Benfield’s presentation this time will focus on gardens that have played an important role in history. He is a very engaging speaker and anyone who attends will be in for a treat. His talk will be followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to talk with him one-on-one.
