 ALWAYS ON TUESDAY…

During the summer months, members of the Geneva Garden Club enjoy spending Tuesday afternoons visiting in each other’s gardens.  It’s a great way to relax, strengthen friendships, share recipes, get great gardening ideas, and of course, it’s “Always on Tuesday.”   Thank you to all the members who opened up their yards this summer!
