Each year as the Ferndale Garden Club starts its new year, it distributes a program book for the benefit of its members.

This year the club decided to dedicate it to Erma Beth Holland, a charter member who died last year and is lovingly remembered by the club. Member Jeanette Lehman composed the book's dedication expressing the feelings of the club. In it she describes Ms. Holland as "creative, talented, helpful and personable." According to Kathy Shatt, president, this is the members' tribute to Ms. Holland, who contributed so much of herself to the club. And, with the unusual and interesting programs, trips and projects listed, it looks as if there is going to be an especially

exciting year ahead.

The club meets at 7:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month for nine months of the year at the Ferndale Senior Center, 7205 Baltimore & Annapolis Blvd. Prospective members and guests are welcome.
