Garden club hosts Mendo-Lake District meeting

KELSEYVILLE, Calif. — The Clear Lake Trowel & Trellis Garden Club hosted the Mendo-Lake District meeting at Hans and Carol Dobusch's property in Kelseyville.

As the attendees entered the property, they were greeted by Phoenix, a Macaw parrot, and two friendly dogs.

The event began with a garden tour of Carol and Han's gardens and a tasty brunch. To the delight of the attendees, all events were held outside under the shade trees in the Dobuschs’ park like landscaping.

Assistant District Director Rhea Pitchard, welcomed the clubs from Ukiah, Willits, Potter Valley and Clear Lake Trowel & Trellis.

Each club shared what they had accomplished during the Spring and Penny Pines Certificates were awarded to Diane Cerutti and Sandy Spencer.

Following the reports from the garden clubs the meeting was adjourned for a barbecue and social time.

Following the barbecue, Terry Knight, local outdoorsman and columnist for the Record-Bee and Ukiah Daily Journal, gave a presentation of the history and lore of Mt. Konocti and Clear Lake. Phoenix the Macaw also enjoyed Knight's presentation with shrieks and jabbering.

They are: Carol Dobusch, president; Kitty Loberg, vice president; Linda Pyers, treasurer; Kathleen Steinberg, secretary; and Hans Dobusch, parliamentarian.
