The Garden Study Club met on Nov. 8 at the home of Maggie Zieger. The hostess served refreshments to the nine members and one visitor present.
The program was given by Tamara Sparks of Dearing. She showed the club members many handmade soaps and candles that she makes from glycerin, herbs, natural oils and goats' milk. These are all natural soaps with nice aromas.
The president, Ruth Knox, called the business meeting to order. Mildred Wright shared a poem about the "Small Blessings" of life. The minutes were read and approved, and the treasurer gave the monthly report. The 2007 Georgia Garden Club calendars were given to the members. The Yard of the Month for November is Jackie Brooks.
