Belpre Garden Club

The January meeting for the Belpre Garden Club was held in the Belpre City Council Chambers with hostess, Leslie Pittenger. Janelle Perkins read the quote from Oliver Goldsmith given in the program booklet which states: “Success consists of getting up just one more time than you fall.”

At the suggestion of Pauline Collett, plans are being made for a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Belpre Garden Club to be held in March.

Leslie Pittenger advised that the color scheme for Belpre in Bloom for 2013 will be red, white, and blue with an emphasis on red. The concrete planters placed in the city park last summer will be replaced with tiered recycled and decorated tires. The city fire hydrants will be painted blue with a vine design over it.

The next meeting will be with Sue Beatty on Feb. 11 as the meeting day has been moved back to the second Monday. Location to be announced.
