Takoma Horticultural Club Presents
Summer Potluck for Members Only
Sunday, September 21, 4 – 7:30 pm
At Jeff & Herman’s

As the nights begin to cool down, our thoughts turn to . . . . our Summer Potluck Picnic, of course! This year our picnic dinner will again be held at the home and garden of Jeff Trunzo and Herman Goodyear. It will be held rain or shine, since there is plenty of room inside and under cover. The date is Sunday, September 21, from 4 to 7:30 pm. The club supplies chicken and beverages, but wine & beer are welcome contributions. Bring an appetizer, main dish, salad, side dish or dessert. Keep in mind that many of our members are vegetarians.

We recommend you bring the following: food contribution (with recipe sign), mosquito deterrent of choice, hat, name tag, and folding chair (if possible). We may need a few more chairs, depending on how many RSVP.

Just as last year, we will have a Garden Exchange (Jeff’s favorite!) Bring anything “garden” – plants, tools, books, ornaments, fancy clean pots, etc. This is the best way to re-gift, recycle & reduce all those garden items you have around the house, shed, basement & garage! No obligation – if you bring something, you get something! Since you must be a club member with your 2014 dues paid, check your membership status (cagalati@rcn.com) before the Potluck if possible, but you can join or renew at the Potluck. Check our website: www.takomahort.org to download a membership form and bring it with a check made out to “THC” for $12. Cash (exact change) will also work. We will not have change.

Please RSVP (caglalati@rcn.com) so we know how much chicken to buy and what food you are bringing to share. Let me know if you have any questions or want to check your membership status. Partners and invited guests are welcome! But we really do need you to RSVP. Hope to see you there – especially some of our newest members. You are in for some real treats, both gastronomical and visual!!

PARKING & DIRECTIONS According to Jeff

My address is: 119 Sherman Avenue, Takoma Park, MD 20912, which is located between Carroll Avenue and Maple Avenue. Sherman Avenue is two blocks from the traffic light at Takoma Junction/TPSS Co-op store, in the direction toward Sligo Creek and Washington Adventist Hospital. Sherman Avenue is only 2 blocks long, bisected by Hancock Avenue (Opal Daniels Park). 119 is in the second block, just as the hill begins to descend toward Maple Avenue. There is plenty of street parking on Sherman Avenue, and also on the cross-street Hancock Avenue. Should all that parking be taken, you can park at either the Municipal Center/Library complex at the corner of Maple Avenue and Philadelphia Avenue (Route 410), or in the Takoma Junction public lot next door to the Co-op. Call either 301-270-5167 (H) or 240-383-6364 (C) if you need help, or if arriving with "stuff" that you want to drop off prior to parking.

The Takoma Horticultural Club (THC) welcomes gardeners from Takoma Park and surrounding areas, including DC, Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, and beyond. Our members love gardening, have very diverse interests and gardening experience, and enjoy many activities throughout the year. The THC Program includes two plant exchanges, two potluck dinners, a local garden tour, workshops, lectures, special trips, and even a free garden consultation. Although many of our events are open to the public, more than half are for members only. And for $12, you can’t go wrong! Join us and increase your gardening pleasure!

The THC email list is open to all and is used to exchange information about gardening. You do not have to belong to the club to join in our email conversation! To join, simply follow the instructions.
