Garden Club seminar succeeds

To the editor:

Recently, the Fort Dodge Area Garden Club held its annual seminar at Iowa Central Community College. In spite of the questionable Iowa weather, the turnout was great with around 80 guests attending from Fort Dodge and Iowa communities.

Bill Boon’s presentation on landscaping was interesting, informative and sometimes amusing.

We thank these area businesses for donating door prizes: Becker Florist and Greenhouse, Chef’s Kitchen, Earl May, Fort Dodge Federated Garden Club, Graham Tire of Fort Dodge, Hy-Vee Drugstore, Lomitas Mexican Restaurant, Long John Silver, Nettie’s, Smitty’s and Village Inn.

Also thanks to the members who supplied treats and door prizes.

A special thank you to ICCC for hosting us in their wonderful Bioscience Building. Thanks to Hans Madsen and The Messenger for covering the event.
