Members will begin selling plates at 10 a.m. Cost is $10 a plate. They will also be selling cakes. Your support for the local fire department will be appreciated.

On Saturday, March 23 Renee’ Cass Vinton, Desiree Cass Reese, Lisa Lambert Koenig and Kari Thompson (Keri lives in Bryan and is Gause Pre-K teacher) participated in the “Girls Just Want to have Fun” 5K run in College Station. This was hosted by BCS Marathon benefiting the Mercy Project. They joined together in dressing as Super Heroes. I saw pictures—really cute. Lisa won Best Costume and she placed fifth out of 1,000 runners with a time of 21:36 minutes. Congratulations to these ladies for finishing the race.

Last fall I took some cuttings from my crepe myrtles and put them in soil to root. I have a dozen or so little crepe myrtle shrubs all with green leaves. If you would like to have one come byandIwillgladlyshare.I don’t know what colors they are, I didn’t mark them. Most of the flowers, shrubs, etc that I have in my yard I have asked for cuttings from friends.

I have yellow cannas I got from Lizzie Light, roses from Elaine Baumann, Mary Neely and Wanda Coats, yellow lantana from my niece Lisa Bleeker, iris from Kerri Cunningham and Mary Lee and I can’t remember all that gave me my crepe myrtle cuttings, but I know they were from a friend. I have a few things that I asked for and if I had only known how some plants “take over” I would have been more careful to thin them out each year.

An example is Mexican Petunia. I was probably told and didn’t pay any attention to the warning. I’ve been working on those this spring. During the years I had a few things that I “begged for” that didn’t take root. If you are wanting a cutting of any plant that I have you are welcome to stop by and I will share, they were all given to me.
