Ten members of the Four Seasons Garden Club met on the evening
of Tuesday, Sept. 10, at Kinzalow Gardens on Dayton Mountain. Mr. Kinzalow led the group on a
comprehensive walking tour around the property, describing his many unusual trees and plants. Of
special interest were his massive bamboo plantings, kiwi vines bearing fruit and interesting
specimen trees such as unusual species of magnolia.
The tour concluded at the swimming
pool where refreshments were served and the club’s business meeting took place. Among the topics
discussed was the upcoming Tennessee Federation of Garden Clubs District 3 meeting, which will be
held in Dayton for the very first time. The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 17, at the First
United Methodist Church. The speaker will be Sally Wencel, Cumberland Trail representative and Wild
Ones Native Plant member and the topic will be “Creating Curb Appeal with Native Plants.” Luncheon
for the District 3 meeting will be catered by Cafe Pascale Deli and Bakery.
Garden Club will celebrate its 50th anniversary next April. A special event is being planned with
Marcia Crews chairing the committee and Donna Taylor as co-chair.
Four Seasons Garden Club
will again donate a decorated tree to the Rhea-diant Holiday Celebration to be held in November.
This year’s theme is “The Magic of Christmas” and the money raised will fund a new digital EKG for
the emergency room at Rhea Medical Center.
