LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club has been notified by the California Garden Clubs Inc. that Gracie Schnabl, fifth grader at the Konocti Christian Academy, has placed second in the state with her Smokey Bear Poster Contest entry.

Linda Waterstraat and school liaison Marilyn Gunther are the team coordinating this contest with the local schools.

To thank Gunther for her efforts for coordinating this program since 2000, the club has awarded her a Penny Pines Certificate.

So far, the club has contributed 5,340 acres to the Penny Pines reforestation program.

The Penny Pines plantings are made as part of the regular National Forest reforestation program on burned-over and brush-covered areas which are potentially productive timberland.

Using these donations, combined with regular forest planting funds, millions of pine, fir, redwood, and giant sequoia seedlings have been planted on acres of National Forest land in California.

If you wish to donate, please contact Penny Pines Chair Nora at 707-272-6885.

The Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club is a member of the Mendo Lake District of the California Garden Club Inc. Pacific Region and National Garden Clubs Inc.

The club welcomes new members and information can be found by visiting www.clttgc.org or call Ginny at 707-489-3511.
