Yuma GC Flower Show & MGM GC Open House
by Karen Bowen
Yuma Garden Club is sponsoring a standard flower show on February 12 titled, "Let Me Call You Sweetheart". The public and all garden club members in Yuma are encouraged to enter designs and horticulture specimens. The show will be held at the Extension Office, 2200 W. 28th St., from 11-3 p.m. A variety of floral design classes and a horticulture division for container and cut specimens will make for an interesting and educational flower show.
Desert Mesa Junior Garden Club members will be exhibiting educational posters concerning the Monarch butterfly. Their school garden was designated a "Monarch Watch Garden" in 2010 and includes milkweed and water sources for Monarchs and other insects. The junior garden club is sponsored by Yuma Garden Club.
In conjunction with the flower show, MGM Garden Club will be holding an open house, "Bring Your Sweetheart to the Garden", at the Robert Moody Demonstration Garden from 11-3:00 p.m. on February 12. The garden is adjacent to the flower show and will allow visitors an opportunity to tour the garden and enjoy the flower show. Live entertainment, food, and plant raffles will help make the event fun for everyone.
