March Meeting

 At our March meeting Mike Bishop spoke to us about Purple Martins. He began the Northern Virginia Purple Martin Initiative to bring the martins back to our area. The initiative now maintains 25 active colonies at parks, golf courses, a university and a monastery. Together, the colonies have more than 350 individual nesting gourds and housing compartments. That is approximately 1,500 young purple martins fledged in 2021. Because they live in colonies, the martins provide regular entertainment.

October Meeting

 We had a cake for Kathleen and thanked her for all that she did for Centreville Garden Club.

 

 
Dolores gave a demonstration on making arrangements with dried and silk materials.  Using our newly learned skills, we made arrangements to be taken to the residents of Manor Care Nursing Home.

September 2021 Meeting

 For our September meeting we met at the Sully Government Center. We hadn't been able to meet there in over a year.

Our speaker was Josie Baxter. She did a wonderful talk and slide show telling us all about her farm where she grows fresh flowers that she sells to local florists.

We also had our annual Sunflower Challenge and potluck with seasonal or locally grown food.
