{Special to The Star}

The first Port St. Joe Garden Club meeting of the 2018-2019 year will be held on Thursday, Sept. 13 at the Garden Club Center located at 216 8th Street. A luncheon will be served at noon but come a little early to visit and mingle.

The featured speaker is Anita Grove from the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve. Anita will offer tips about how to create a lush home garden while also protecting our treasured St. Joseph Bay and other adjacent waters from run-off pollution. A business meeting will follow. This event is open to the public.

If you are interested in attending please email psjgardenclub@gmail.com so we can ensure sufficient chairs and food for all. We hope to see you at our lovely and historic Garden Center on Sept. 13.
