Program: Clubhouse & Park Clean-Up BBQ Night (Annual Meeting and Officer Elections)
Program Chairs: Garden & Clubhouse Committees

All hands on deck! During our May meeting, we will be organizing our Clubhouse gardens and adjacent Mary Sheridan Park for the 13th Annual Hidden Gardens of Lambertville Tour (scheduled for June 13th, 2009). As host of the tour, the Kalmia Clubhouse needs to look its best for all the many visitors who come to town.

For those of you who prefer the outdoors, please bring garden gloves, rakes, and tools and spend one diggin’ hour with your Kalmia cohorts. For members who prefer the cool indoors and the kitchen prep, indoor workers will be assigned various jobs.

Please remember that as a member of the Kalmia Club, your volunteer support for this event is very much appreciated. The more members who join in the fun, the less time it will take to make our garden shine! A scrumptious BBQ and cold refreshments will be on tap to keep us moving. All will enjoy the fruits of their labor in one big feast!

*Please note: This meeting will begin at 6:00 PM!
