The Palmetto Bay Garden Club celebrated its third annual holiday party on Dec. 19 with more than 67 members and guests attending.
Held at the home of Guillermo and Candy Cancio-Bella, guests included Palmetto Bay Mayor Shelley Stancyzk, Vice Mayor Brian Pariser and Councilmembers Howard Tendrich and Joan Lindsey. Club president Candy McDonald reported that the group of gardening enthusiasts has been busily at work on a special effort for the community.
“The club’s current project for the village is the entrance to Coral Reef Park Tennis Center,” McDonald said. “Committee members Sharon Kujawa, Ines Mander, Henry Clifford, Bev Gerald and myself have been working closely with the village’s parks personnel regarding this project. The planting for this project should take place in early January.”
The Palmetto Bay Garden Club is open to all gardening and non-gardening residents.
“Our speaker for Jan. 24 will be Gabriele Marewski, master gardener and owner of Paradise Farms,” McDonald said. “Gabriele grows gourmet vegetables and will discuss the seasonal timing of planting as well as the ins and outs of planting successful kitchen vegetables.”
The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at the Edward and Arlene Feller Community Room in the library building at Ludovici Park, 17641 Old Cutler Rd.
