There will be classes for chrysanthemums, of all kinds, dahlias, cosmos, marigold*, and ferns and pot plants.  J This rainy spell will help our gardens. It is not too late to set out plants of hardy chrysanthemums, cosmos or marigolds. Any one desiring these plants should telephone to Mrs. B. C. McLean, chairman.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
