The Arlington Garden Club kicked off its 90th year celebration Sept. 11.
The club currently has 91 members from across north Snohomish County. Its monthly programs focus on various areas of interest for gardeners and take place the second Monday of each month, September through June, starting at 11 a.m. at the Gleneagle Country Club in Arlington. Dues are $15 a year. There is a $20 program fee at each meeting, which includes lunch.
The next program, set for Oct. 9, will feature Dave Pehling, retired long term WSU entomology specialist, who has worked closely with Snohomish County Master Gardeners. He will explain new information on apple tree pests in the Pacific Northwest.
The club also awards scholarships. The two scholarship recipients this year include Anna Flyak, graduating from Lake Stevens High School and enrolled at the University of Washington, where she plans to work on researching climate change. Her parents are Nadiya and Vitaliy Fllyak. The other recipient is Aiden Meis, who graduated from Arlington High School. He is attending Washington State University, studying environmental science. His parents are Greg and Dana Meis.
