Our speaker April 19, was Jeanne Aller, Master Gardner, Guilford County Extension Service. This was a very informative program, enhanced by an impressive  PowerPoint presentation on Containers for Curb Appeal. Jeanne's premise was that what you can plant in the ground, you can plant in containers. She gave us a lot of ideas to make plants successful in the containers.

In attendance: Bill Riggs; Mae Brown;  Thelma Burritt; Dorothy Burnette; Willie Pegram; Ron Leonard; Mildred Mallard; Pattie Ward Miller; Sally Moore; Becky Babaoff; Nancy & Hayes Ratledge; Janet Shepherd, Ash-Leigh Brown and her Mom, Bambi.
