Hello Harshbarger Members...and Friends,
Hope you're having a good summer and your hostas are lush and beautiful like the ones at our Noelridge Garden. With the exception of a few visits from Mr. Cutworm, it has been a good year for hostas so far.
In early 1987 a group of Iowa City hosta enthusiasts decided to meet to "talk" hostas and to "visit each other's gardens" and "to have fun doing so!". The group met again in September 1987 and then, with Gretchen Harshbarger's permission, officially became the Harshbarger Hosta Society in April 1988.
So....., this means we're 30 years old -- Happy Birthday to us !!! And what do you usually do when you turn the big 3-0 ? Have a PARTY !!!
We're going to celebrate with a get together at the Hosta Garden at Noelridge Park on Wednesday, July 26, 2017.
Our gathering will officially start at 7:00 p.m., but come early to walk through the Hosta Garden as well as some of the rest of Noelridge Gardens. The flower gardens have recently been planted and should be in their prime by the end of July.
We'll be serving ROOTBEER FLOATS and cupcakes, play a couple HostaGAMES (simple & voluntary) and have some drawings for PRIZES, including HOSTAS.
So, Bring a lawn chair and come on out. 'Czech Out' the new rock naming our garden and visit with hosta friends. Special Invitation to our New Members -- we hope you will be able to join us and get acquainted.
IMPORTANT: There is no cost for this event but we do ask that you RSVP. Please RSVP to this e-mail by NOON, TUESDAY, JULY 25, 2017 with the names of those who will be attending.
