 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.
