Club members share love of gardening with pre-schoolers

Digging in dirt, planting flowers and seeds and watering their efforts all means fun for 3-, 4- and 5-year-old pre-school children.

Four members from the Desert Pointe Garden Club recently visited Summit School of Ahwatukee to work on a garden project with preschool children in Suchi Roy and Laura Otradovec’s class.

Club members first gave instructions to the pre-schoolers on how to plant and care for a flower garden. Then, everyone went outside to special garden boxes built on the pre-school playground. The children planted annual flowers, daffodil bulbs and did a special “make a wish” throwing of wildflower seeds over their shoulders.

Desert Pointe Garden Club will be working with the pre-school children on future garden projects.

For more information on Desert Pointe Garden Club, visit its Web page on the Arizona Federation of Garden Club’s Web site at www.azgardenclub.org, then click on “Members Clubs.”

CCC gets visit from pink fire engine

The mission for the nonprofit “Cares Enough to Wear Pink” campaign is to provide a national movement for the support of women across the country by wearing their color, pink.

In support of the campaign, Dave Graybill brought “Elaine,” one of five pink fire engines touring the country as part of the Pink Heals Tour ‘09, to the November Ahwatukee Chat, Chew and Chocolate meeting at Arrivederci Trattoria.

The pink fire trucks are visiting cities all over the country to raise awareness and help generate proceeds that stay in local communities to help with bills, co-pays, research and general financial help for families that may be struggling. The national movement has reached more than 900 cities so far.

For more information, visit www.pinkheals.com.
