Town and Country Garden Club held its latest meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at River Bend Country Club, with Dot Tune and Ann Farrar serving as hostesses. Winners in the arrangements and floral specimens prepared at home were Barbara Thomas, Gail Parsons, Charlene Nelson, Naomi Luna, and Betty Shofner.

The program consisted of dried fall "boot" arrangements created by each member during the meeting. Ginny Saylor supplied all the materials for the project. All dried items came from Bedford County, with the exception of the eucalyptus from California, and the Spanish Moss from a relative's home in Florida. The flowers were sealed with hair spray and clear sealant.
