The Lexington Garden Club met with Mrs. C.W.
Moore on Friday, February 20th, in the Red Room of
the Lafayette Hotel. There were 25 members pres-

Mrs. Young, the President, presided.

Before the meeting Mrs. Estill distributed
the year books and was much complimented on their

The secretary read the minutes of the last
meeting and they were approved.

The treasurer reported that having sent a
check for $100.00 to the Arboretum of the Univer-
sity of Kentucky, she had $97.00 in the treasury.

Mrs. Young asked the auditors, Mrs. Thomas
and Mrs. Herndon, to count the ballots of the ques—
tionaire, with the following result:

For the reconstruction of the

gardens at Ashland..... 31 Yes 8 No
For the Kentucky Botanical
gardens ................ 32 Yes 8 No

The President then asked Mrs. Tandy Hughes to
talk to the Club about Lilies. Mrs. Hughes gave
a most interesting and informing lecture, quoting
recognized authorities, and distributing a list of
the best “fool proof“ varieties to insure lily
bloom all the year. She divided lilies into stem—
rooting and bulb—rooting varieties, and gave ad-
vice as to their habits and culture.

Mrs. Lafferty suggested that such a lecture
be put on file for future use and offered to have
Mrs. Hughes' paper mimeographed for the Club.

Hrs. Young then returned to the business of
the meeting. She called upon Mrs. Lawwill to read
the revised constitution and by-laws.

The question of attendance required at meet—
ings and of a third class of membership was dis-
cussed, and it was moved by Mrs. Lewis, seconded by
Miss Vanmeter: "That the by—laws and constitution
be accepted as read". The motion carried.


 Mrs. Young told the Club that it was in—
debted to Mrs. Lafferty for mimeographing the
questionaire sent out to the membership. She
then told of the progress made in gaining infor-
mation and COOperation in the matter of the pro—
posed pilgrimage.

The Kentucky Progress Commission will furn—
ish an unlimited supply of booklets concerning
the tour. The Automobile Club has been asked to
mark roads. The Board of Commerce will pledge
assistance. Mr. Shouse will give office and
desk Space at the Lafayette Hotel.

She specially stated that no member of the
Garden Club will be asked to drive or lend cars,
and that a system of student guides will be
worked out to supplement the guide books and
road marks if desired.

Mrs. Young told of a visit to Kenwick School,
which has a garden club, and would be grateful
for plants, seeds or supplies for a garden.

"Their youth and enthusiasm should be encouraged",
she said.

Mrs. Van Deren then diSplayed a rare and beas—
tiful lily, the Clibra, a lovely red specimen with
22 blooms. She said it had first been brought to
her notice at the Louisville Flower Show two years

Mrs. Young called attention to the Cincinnati
Flower Show at Music Hall, March 7——15th. She
read a letter from the Fayette Rose and Garden
Club, urging the Garden Club to join a federation
of garden clubs for the state.

Mrs. Lawwill and Mrs. Lafferty spoke in fav—
or of such an affiliation, but no action was

Mrs. Young reported that Mr. Purdie will not
be available for a lecture this year, but Mrs.
Perkins is anxious to come, also a Mrs. Cake.

Mrs. Lawwill moved that the question be left to
the program committee.

Mrs. Lawwill recommended a lecture at the
Woman's Club on the 28th, as a source of interest.
A Mr. McKenna will be the speaker.

The meeting then adjourned on motion.

Respectfullxw ubmitted,
% “”1 ’< Sec'y.


 The Board of the Lexington Garden Club met
in the Colonial Room of the Lafayette Hotel on
Wednesday, March 12th, at ten o'clock. 15 members
were present.

Mrs. Young told of COOperation she had re—
ceived in planning the pilgrimage. She said that
the Progress Commission's magazine was too bulky to
send by mail and their smaller booklet not off the
press, and stated that we may have to have small
booklets printed giving information, routings and
road maps.

Mrs. Bullock moved "That the Board ask the
Garden Club to lend them the $500.00 in the savings
account to use in this emergency." Motion was sec—
onded by Mrs. John Lewis, and carried.

Mrs. Young reported that there was $54.00
in entrance fees at Mrs. Miner's lecture, and so
no deficit.

Mrs. Young called attention to the meeting
of the Garden Club of America May l8—-22, at Glen-
coQaQLong Island. The President and her delegate
and four other delegates are entitled to go. Mrs.
Clarke indicated a willingness to go and Miss Hume
stated that Mrs. Lawwill eXpects to go.

Mrs. Clarke stated that she had about com-
pleted the necessary information in regard to the
trip to Charleston, and stated that she would re—
gret going further into the matter unless it was
definitely decided that sufficient persons were
interested to make it worth the while of the Bus
Company and the Garden Club. She said that the
dates offered as most desirable were from the 5th
to the 15th of April, that the cost would be be-
tween B50.00 and $60.00, and would last for five
days, but that she would be prepared with all
necessary information at the meeting of the Club
on Friday. 7

Mrs. Estill reported that she had gotten
complimentary reports on Mrs. Oaks as a speaker,
and also Mrs. Jacobs of South Carrollton who
writes that she will be glad to come to the club
in June for $35.00.

Miss Robinson emphasized the need for haste
in getting out advertisement of the pilgrimage.


 Mrs. Young told what her plans were along that
line, advertising in the nationally known gar-
den periodicals being prohibitive.

The meeting then adjourned on motion.

Respectfully Submitted,
