SCARBRO — The Scarbro Garden Club held a monthly meeting on Feb. 21. Eleven members and four guests enjoyed a Dutch treat dinner at the Café One Ten in Oak Hill.

Also discussed were the club’s two community projects, painting a gazebo and planting summer flowers at the Chamber of Commerce in Oak Hill.

The Scarbro Garden Club was organized 62 years ago, on Feb. 15, 1952, and Federated on Aug. 16, 1952. Betty Gay (Miller) Legg has been a member of the club for 45 years.
