MICHIGAN Hosta Society - August 2022                          


MHS ANNUAL MEETING/LUNCHEON/PLANT AUCTION
When: August 21st beginning at 9:00am
Where: Hidden Lake Garden, 6214 Monroe Road (Hwy M-50), Tipton, MI 49287

Please join us at Hidden Lake Gardens on Sunday August 21st when we will meet at Hosta Hillside to spruce up the gardens followed by our luncheon prepared and organized by Patty Creal and Mary Lu Barth. Lunch will take place under the big tent near the parking lot. Patty and Mary Lu are planning sloppy Joes, coleslaw, chips, carrots and celery, watermelon, cookies and water and soda pop. Sarah DaPra is bringing the donuts for that mid-morning sweet tooth and sugar rush at Hosta Hillside that we all anticipate. They will once again come from the famous Hinkley Bakery in Jackson.
After lunch we will have a brief meeting as required by our bylaws and finally a plant auction will conclude our activities. Please try to bring a potted shade loving plant or 2 or even 3 to donate to our auction. Your donations help keep our society financially healthy. If you could bring a few tools that you use regularly in your garden, it would be helpful on Hosta Hillside. We should have 5-gallon buckets available for you to use. We encourage everyone to come even if you have physical limitations that keep you from working on the Hillside. Seeing our hosta friends again and making new ones is what the “friendship plant” is all about. We look forward to seeing you there!
