Earlier this summer, a group of the Pottawatomie Garden Club members gathered to keep the River Corridor in downtown St. Charles looking beautiful. This group has met several times this summer, most recently Aug. 12.
The club also will be planting colorful flowers downtown this fall.
On Wednesday, Sept. 16, club members will meet at 9 a.m. at the Municipal Building, 2 E. Main St. for the “Planting of the Bridges.” Volunteers will help plant the beautiful fall flowers selected for the Main Street and Illinois bridges. Bring your own garden gloves, knee pad and trowel. Plants will be provided.
On Monday, Sept. 28, the club’s monthly meeting will begin at noon at Baker Memorial United Methodist Church in St. Charles. The topic will be “Recycling Know-How” with SCARCE (School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composing Education).
It is an award-winning environmental education nonprofit dedicated to creating sustainable communities. This is accomplished through innovative and hands-on education programs for the schools and organizations, demonstrating care for our natural resources. Executive Director Kay McKeen started SCARCE (formerly SCRAP) in 1990. She will share all you need to know about recycling beneficially.
