2016 Garden Gathering
This fundraiser is held following the Hudson Home and Garden Tour. This year, Tracy and Tom Corpus and their family were our gracious hosts and shared their lovely home and grounds. Guests enjoyed delicious hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer, and a wine pull event. Catering was provided by Nosh Eatery, with beverages by Colonial Wine & Beverage. Valet parking was provided by Great Lakes Valet. Floral arrangements were provided by the Hudson Garden Club. Many thanks to Lois James and Karen Kelly for organizing a successful event!
Members Jackie and Al Seremak hosted an Open Garden
Members Jackie and Al Seremak welcomed the club to their Northfield Center garden in May. They have been tending and adding to their lush, cottage style garden for 40 years. It is a patchwork of trees, shrubs, perennials, vines, groundcovers, and vegetable plots connected by winding paths. A pond is a focal point and is home to minks and ducks. A variety of country style structures, hardscaping and specimen trees keep the garden interesting even during the winter months. Refreshments and a guided tour made for a delightful morning.

May Day tradition continues
Since 1985, our club has celebrated May Day by delivering flowers to local city offices and schools. These public entities work with our club throughout the year by assisting with our civic outreach projects and the Home and Garden Tour. This is our way of thanking them for their cooperation and celebrating the coming of spring. The floral gift is different every year. This year it was a potted lavender plant.
Herbal Eye Masks were subject of Herb Group meeting
The April gathering of the garden club's Herb Group was a crafting session to make herbal eye masks. Chair Sherry Beam gathered the materials needed. Nancy Kolodgy did the cutting of the fabric and machine sewed it beforehand. The group then filled them with a mixture of lavender and flax seed and sewed the small opening closed by hand. Herbal eye masks are used to help induce deep relaxation. All club members are welcome to attend Herb Group events. Contact Sherry Beam for more info.
