HERBS FOR HEALTH AND FUN CLUB
July 16, 2012
The Herbs for Health and Fun Club met Monday evening at the lovely garden of JoAnn Lamczyk in Centralia, with 17 members and 2 guests present. President
Judy Mason welcomed everyone, and called the meeting to order.
The minutes of the last meeting were published in the newsletter. It was
noted that the map to Barth Park in Cisne was actually the map to Glenda Eubank's home.
After this correction was made, the minutes were approved as written.
Ernie Henson gave the treasurer's report for Treasurer Ann Henson, who was unable to attend. He reported a balance of $13,161.19. He also reported that
Ann had filed the required corporation form. Three scholarships have been paid,
one each to Micah Dugan and Robby Bennett (to Kaskaskia College) and to Hannah
Herzing( to Rend Lake College). Ernie read a thank you from Kaskaskia College
for the 2 scholarships. The treasurer's report was approved.
Co-chairwomen Lucy Baker and Treasa Brookman gave their Herb Show report. There
will be about 46 booths, and several of these vendors have submitted subjects for proposed
presentations, which Lucy read.
Treasa brought the "Encyclopedia of Roses" book which the Jefferson County Master Gardeners will present to the Brehm
Library in memory of Perri Bond, Master Gardener and Herb Club member. Treasa will leave the book at the Lee Extension Office for a few months for the convenience of Master Gardeners
and Herb Club members to see.
Member Theresa Greene has received the State Sustained Excellence Award for Master Gardeners.
It was reported that long-time vendors, Raymond and Sue Creasy will not return to the Herb Show, due to the fact that
they don't sell enough items to warrant the long trip from Arkansas. After discussion,
Leora McTall made a motion to offer Raymond and Sue Creasy free booth rental, in exchange for their folk music, played at
their booth in the center of the mall, which sets the tone for the entire Herb Show.
The motion was seconded by Judy Beadle, and motion carried. Treasa will
contact the Creasys with the offer.
Leora reported that the Salem Garden Tour was hot, but very enjoyable. The
vendors were located at the William Jennings Bryan Memorial Garden, where they now have an All American Selections Display.
Treasa announced that the bus is full for the H.C.E. sponsored tour of the Calhoun County Barn Quilts.
Ralph McTall made a motion the meeting be adjourned, seconded by Judy Beadle.
The beautiful bird feeder door prize was won by Craig Colclasure.
