The Cynthia Ann Garden Club had its monthly meeting on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 1pm in the Groesbeck Woman’s Club.
The program for the day was presented by Becky Smith. She introduced us to Kelly Young, one of the Assistant Principals for Groesbeck ISD. She told us about Cassandra Bindea, who had helped start the Butterfly Program for 4th graders and introduced us to the two little girls, Coty Alvarado and Johnae King, who gave us the program. They explained what all they do to help the butterflies live and survive even though they only live 15 days. The girls brought with them a poster they had made showing their progress. Last year, these girls while in the 4th grade were able to plant Milk Weed which is a staple of Monarch Butterflies to help sustain them. They told us how expensive the seeds for these plants are and how they raised money with bake sales and selling flowers for Mother’s Day. The also told us that they were starting a Go Fund Me page to help with expenses. You might contact Mrs. Young for information on how to donate to this wonderful project. These two girls did a great job and even took questions. Thank you to them and their parents for bringing them as well as Mrs. Young for coming and representing the school.
Our hostesses, Cecily Ball, Sue Leach, Susan Hughes, and Mary Belle Leach had decorated the room like a Winter Wonderland with many snowmen all over the room. Even a large snowman sat on the bench on the front porch to welcome us in. The main table was covered in a beautiful white tablecloth and in the center was a little crystal village surrounding a tall snowman. The plates were royal blue and the napkins were blue with white dots. They had covered the table with Assorted Sliders, chip and dip, cookies, chocolate and vanilla mini cupcakes, a veggie plate with dip and we had fruit punch to drink. Many thanks to them for the delicious fare.
A wonderful time of fellowship followed.
