President Catherine Gilmore presided at the monthly meeting, which was attended by seven members.
Beverly Best presented the devotion on the new and old fruit in life.
The program by Pattie Godwin was on fall plants. She named various plants that add color to gardens with their interesting deep hues. She also remarked about food that the gardens supply to birds, planting bulbs and maintenance for the season.
Highlights were reported on the fall board meeting, an anniversary reception by the Clinton Garden Club and the club’s entry in a scarecrow competition. It was decided which state awards the club would apply.
In the hostess gift drawing, Catherine Gilmore received an inspirational wooden plaque.
