DAMASCUS-The Damascus Garden Club, a member of the Garden Club of Ohio Inc., met March 14 in the cafe area of the Damascus Friends Church. The club continued with its special celebration of its 60th anniversary year by giving a special tribute to member Betty Bircher, who has been a member of the club since 1956. Throughout her long membership Bircher has served in many ways including holding the office of president. Marilyn Wingett opened the meeting by reading a poem composed to honor Bircher. Accompanying Bircher to the meeting was her daughter and special guest, Marty Sleask. The 14 members present shared their memories of Bircher's service to the club and presented her with an honorary membership certificate and a bouquet of yellow roses, the club's floral symbol.
