   Congratulations to David and Beth Berry this years recipient of the David T. Ross Memorial Service Award


August 7th

Guest Speaker 

Jill Bonino

Our August 7th meeting will, as it has for a number of years, feature a

wonderful and comprehensive slideshow presentation by our own Jill

Bonino. In addition to our local club trek on April 5th, Jill has some

great shots taken on the April 19th Regional Spring Trek which included her

garden, Cheryl Deaton's garden and the Moon's garden.

When the great Australian hybridizer Barry Blyth visited in May, a tour

of several gardens took place in the high desert including the Anesi,

Nygaard and Escarcega gardens plus a couple of gardens in the San Diego area.

Jill's emphasis here will be on creatively different ways of irrigation which should

be of great interest to those of us faced with the real possibility of water

restrictions in the coming years.

Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at the Canoga Park Women's Club,

7401 Jordan Avenue at the corner of Valerio and Jordan, 2 blocks east of Topanga Canyon Blvd, between Sherman Way

and Saticoy St.
 Refreshments, beginning at 7:00 pm provides an opportunity for all to socialize. At 7:30 pm a brief business

meeting is convened, followed by the evening's program.

Members and visitors are welcome.
