Greetings, Morgan! If you have a garden, how is it growing? The garden of Joan and Ron Korzeniewski is certainly growing well this summer and was recently on display for the Northern Gardeners Club Garden Walk on July 21.

A light mist of rain during the event did not keep the garden viewers away. In the few weeks that have passed since I previewed the Korzeniewski garden, many different plants have started to bloom. Golden black-eyed Susans, blue balloon flowers, purple coneflowers and day lilies of every color were flourishing in late July.

Along with viewing the flower and vegetable gardens, folks could watch artist Dorothy Grzeskowiak of Pulaski demonstrate her oil painting techniques. Grzeskowiak is a longtime artist who also crafts garden adornments. The Korzeniewski garden was one of six garden walk sites throughout the area, and several people I spoke with said they were planning to visit all six. Volunteers from the Northern Gardeners Club were present to welcome visitors and answer questions about the garden.

Mark your calendars for the annual Green Valley-Morgan Fire Department picnic on Aug. 11 at the Green Valley Fire Station, N5746 Oak Ave., Green Valley. Festivities are set to begin at noon with numerous children’s activities, a classic car show, bucket brigade and music by “Star 69” starting at 7:30 p.m. Food will be served all day, including chicken booyah, brats, hot dogs, hamburgers and Sun Drop slushies. By attending the picnic, you can help out the fire department while enjoying the camaraderie of friends and neighbors. Contact any firefighter for information on the picnic.

Also mark your calendar to vote Aug. 14 in the partisan primary election. Many statewide races will be on the ballot, as well as the race for Oconto County sheriff. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.

The next Town Board meeting will be 7 p.m. Aug. 13.
