The Morenci Garden Club chose the property of Ramiro and Jeri Sanchez on Coomer Street as Garden of the Month for June. Ray and Cheryl Cowgill’s unique rooftop garden, at the corner of Main and Orchard streets, is July’s Garden of the Month.
During the July 14 meeting, club president Betsy Smith presented Lorene Whitehouse with a plaque in honor of Morenci Garden Club’s 55th anniversary. Lorene is one of the club’s founding members. A gardening book was also purchased and donated to Stair Public Library in memory of Lorene’s husband, Dr. Keith Whitehouse.
The club recently welcomed new members Anita Prats and Annette Nichols.
