Jones creates floral designs at Magnolia Garden Club

MOULTRIE — Barbara Jones displayed Armature Form Designs that she created at the Magnolia Garden Club.

The first design was a Class 3 Design, "A Memory of Times Past.” She used and old quilt, a milking stool, rooster, and wire fence and a place setting of china, etc. The second design was a Class 6 — “Wings Aloft.” The third was a Class 9 "At Sunrise" Depicting Oriental Manner: “Heaven, Earth and Man." Fourth was a small Hawaiian Design, “Here I Come."

Dotti Bynum gave an interesting program on Baltimore Orioles. She elaborated on their colors and songs. You will find the oriole in the North American region. They are orange and black in color and sing many songs. They are fond of fruit and nectar as well as insects. They also like sipping from hummingbird feeders. The female weaves a remarkable banging nest. Baltimore Orioles are more often seen than heard as they feed high in trees. They are easily lured to backyard feeders.

Mary Phillips created a design for the Food Table with ferns, marigolds and candelabra.

Lorena Barhite, president, opened the meeting, with a welcome to the members and visitors. Faye Rowe gave the devotion and prayer. Milred Rentz gave the Treasury report.

Mary Phillips judged the horticulture brought by members from their flower gardens. She explained how to prepare your flowers for entering them in a flower show and gave blue ribbons for everyone.

At a recent District Board meeting, the Magnolia Garden Club received two Certificates of Recognition from the Garden Club of Georgia — one for Garden Therapy and the other for 100% Sales of Georgia Engagement Calendars.

Two new members of the Garden Club were Gwen Desselle and Pam McGlamry.

Clariece Elmore from a Thomasville Garden Club was a visitor.

Hostesses for the meeting were Mary Phillips, Shirley Mims and Lorena Barhite.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
