The Kendalia Neighbors Extension Club met at the Kendalia Community Center on Thursday, March 10. After the TEEA prayer, Krissie Thomson introduced the speaker, Fay Drozd, a master gardener from Ingram. The theme was gardening in the 21st century. She gave suggestions on the best seeds to purchase for our area, fertilizer and watering needs. The appetites for starting a spring garden were whetted.
Three new members have been added to the roster – Jim and Julie Barbe and Julia Bridges. We are very happy to have them in our group.
On February 23, Jane James, Kathie Moseley and Penney Robbins presented a program on "The Underground Railroad Quilt" to 4th and 5th graders at the Comfort School. The children enjoyed piecing various quilt blocks and learning the meaning of each.
The April 14 field trip to New Braunfels was finalized. We will have lunch at the Red Rooster and then visit the Heritage Village.
May 12 will be the Plant Sale-Salad Luncheon in Kendalia. This will be a joint meeting with Comfort.
