Holiday Party

The Holiday Party will be held on December 9th in the Fellowship Hall at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Corner of Glen Ave. and South Reynold’s Street, Scotia, NY beginning at
12:00 Noon.

In the spirit of “Helping Hands for the Holidays,” we will donate toys or books to our local Ronald McDonald House for children going into Albany Medical Center for treatment. Please bring only new toys or books for children ages 2 to 8.

Gift Exchange: Members who would like to be involved in a Holiday Gift Exchange should wrap a gift with an average price of $15.00 in value and bring it to the party. Please do not place any nametags on your gift. Only those who bring a gift to exchange are eligible to participate. We will use the same exchange rules as last year with each gift only being permitted to be swapped once; however, due to more people attending, you will have to be prepared to make your swap within one minute after your number is pulled or you will be asked to just take a new unopened gift from those remaining!

Dish to share: As is our tradition, each member is asked to bring a favorite holiday dish to pass. A stove is available if food must be held at a warm temperature.

If you have questions on the Holiday Party, please send an e-mail to Cindy Jennings at: UNYHS@aol.com or feel free to call her at (518) 541-3598.

Please Bring your Beautiful Photos to our Holiday Party! Since members had so much fun at our first two photo contests, we thought we would repeat it again at this year’s Holiday Gathering. So please sort through all those beautiful photos you have taken! Photos must be 5″ X 7″ size with no frames or mats.

If you are able to stay after the meeting to chip in with the work, please bring weeding tools. Any help you can give will be appreciated greatly.

Do You Love Colchicums?

Many people will remember Kathy Purdy, who spoke at the Winter Doldrums party last February. Kathy has collected and planted colchicums at her home in Oxford, NY for years. Come see one of the country’s largest collections of colchicums. Kathy Purdy invites you to view the colchicum collection in her garden on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 11 am to 4 pm, rain or shine. Kathy has over 50 different kinds of these fall-blooming bulbs, many of which will be in bloom at the end of September. Each variety is labeled and attractively situated in the garden with companion plants. Visitors are welcome to bring their own lunch and enjoy it on the screened deck. Set your GPS to 565 Moran

Picnic!

Daylily season is in full swing – our gardens are strutting their stuff! It’s a perfect time for our Picnic in the garden at the Cooperative Extension office in Voorheesville. Our display garden will be gorgeous, thanks to Pat and Don Salhoff and all who participated in the weeding party.

The picnic is Saturday, July 15th at 11 am in the garden gazebo. We will also have access to the building in case of weather issues, but so far (fingers crossed) the weather seems to be cooperating.

HADS will provide sandwiches, soda, coffee and water. Please bring a dish to share. Seating in the gazebo is limited so also bring a folding chair.

We have also invited the hosta society (UNYHS) and the iris society (CHIS). We will need a count of the people planning to attend in order to have enough sandwiches, so please contact Carol Volungus (daylilly@juno.com) or me
(S. Kronau – skronau@nycap.rr.com)
by Thursday, July 13th if you are planning to attend. Apologies for the short notice,
my daylilies have been very demanding . .

It will be great fun, so we hope to see you there!
