Garden club organizing

PARIS — A garden club is organizing in the Oxford Hills and interested people are invited to attend an organizational meeting on Saturday, April 13, at 10 a.m. at the McLaughlin Garden on Main Street.

The purpose of the club would be for gardeners to visit each other’s gardens and to talk about gardening. The organizers, who are volunteers at the McLaughlin Garden, plan to continue working for that organization but want an additional outlet to pursue their gardening interests.

It is hoped that the new club would join the Garden Club Federation of Maine in order to gain access to the high quality conferences and tours that the statewide organization offers. Information may be obtained by calling Harriet Robinson at 743-7236.
