July 2nd: Our member picnic will be held at the Riverside County Park * at 12 noon on the 2nd. The club will provide the BBQ’d veggie, regular burgers and hot-dogs with condiments. Each of you can bring a side dish, or dessert to share, so be sure to be there by noon so we can add your dish to the rest of them. It’s nice and shady with picnic tables, but you might want the comfort of your own chair, and beverages of your choice. If you have any outdoor games you can bring, that would be fun too. I know we’ll have horseshoes set up. As a special treat, Shelly Kibby will take us on a walk around the meadow and point out different plants, especially those of medicinal value!  (The park is located at the south end of So. Pine Crest, on Riverside County Playground Rd.) There is no need to pay at the entrance. If asked, just advise you are with the Garden Club.

Our next regular meeting will be on June 4th. 12 noon at the Comm.Presbyterian    Church 54400 N. Circle. See the calendar of meetings and events below 

 

Visitors are welcome! If you wish to join the dues are: $20 for a single member, or $30 for couples, or families.
Please pay at a meeting, or mail to IGC, P.O. Box 681, Idyllwild Ca 92549, or you may pay on-line with a credit card at: www.idyllwildgardenclub.net
