Pioneer Sesqui Study Club Hears Tips On Gardening



The April Meeting of Sesqui Study Club opened with members answering the roll call with “Name the Easter Bunny”.

Sesqui members welcomed Flo Chirra, from the Williams County Extension, speaking on gardening both inside and out. He gave tips on vegetables and when to plant. Also Flo told about a newer trend of growing vegetables in containers. He said there are a number of different containers that could be used and explained what vegetables grow better in what size container. He also stated the importance of healthy soil and told of a recipe mix for the garden. Flo handed out several fact sheets containing information on yard and garden, houseplant insect control, grass and weed control in lawns, health management guide for indoor plants and also a Spring Garden Calendar. Very helpful information and just in time for Spring Planting.

The meeting followed with discussions and suggestions on projects for the next Sesqui year to replenish the treasury. Sesqui plans to set up a “snow-cone” booth at the Pioneer Festival in June. We will continue with our annual bake sales and plan a flea market/garage sale during the Pioneer parade of garage sales, just to name a few. We are planning to have more projects this year and hope for support from the community, especially since our proceeds go back into the community.

Following the meeting members enjoyed refreshments prepared by hostesses Marilyn Sumner and Mary Steinke along with a “white elephant silent auction.”

The May meeting will be the annual “Mystery Dinner” out on Thursday, May 21, 2015. Members are to meet at the Pioneer United Methodist Church at 5:30 PM.
