The Sun Lakes Garden Club Keeps on Growing!

Starla Kramer

Members enjoy amazing field trips and excellent speakers every month. One of the two January field trips was a private tour of the historic Arizona Biltmore Hotel and the beautiful grounds and gardens built in 1929. The hotel has hosted every president since President Truman and many celebrities including Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable.

The featured speaker for the Feb. 18 meeting is Linda Larson, a Traveling Gardener. Linda is a Master Gardener who has visited and photographed over 900 gardens in 35 countries and 4 continents. Her photographic presentation this month is An Illustrated Story of the History & Fashion of Container Gardening.

Guests are always welcome to attend a meeting or field trip. Guests may decide to become a member to enjoy field trips and receive our newsletter. Memberships are $20 per year, and a spouse or second member in the household is only $10 per year. The meetings start with socializing, refreshments, and greeting guests at 9:30 a.m., followed by a featured presentation and meeting until noon. Many members and guests also gather after the meeting for an optional lunch at a nearby restaurant. The club meets every month, all year, on the third Tuesday at the Chapel Center (next door to the Sun Lakes All Faiths Community Church). It is at 9230 E. Sun Lakes Blvd. N., across the street from the Sun Lakes Country Club.
