DISTRICT III - Terrebonne Garden Club, Houma, LA Deeds and Doings
September 11, 2020 Meeting
Terrebonne Garden Club held its first meeting of the year on September 11, 2020. The original meeting place was not available due to COVID-19. The club improvised and held its meeting at Grand Bayou Noir, a registered property available for outdoor parties and activities. The open tent provided a perfect backdrop accenting the surrounding gardens.
The highlight of the view was an 85 year old oak tree. Seen below, the tree’s girth measures 25 feet. There are eight more majestic oaks that the club will register. To carry on the outdoor theme of the meeting, members were asked to identify the arrangements found on each table. The club has been very creative finding ways to interact with its members. Thirty of our 88 members attended the meeting .
Member Debbie Ellender loaned us her tented back yard for the first meeting of the 20-21 year.
Paulette Henry holds up sample of horticulture and identifies each of the blooms. The oak tree is seen behind her.
Planted in the 1934’s, it has a girth of 24 feet. There are nine other trees on the property and the owners want to register all of them.
