2019 Holiday Tree at Westlake Porter Library

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, at least in the lobby of the Westlake Porter Library. Members of the Westlake Garden Club decorated a tree in the lobby on November 14 for the community to enjoy. This year's tree is decorated with things from nature; birds, owls, deer, fruit. Thanks to Robert Pearl who has chaired the tree committee for several years and is the one who puts the tree together and gets it ready to decorate. Robert and his committee consisting of Kathy Bruening, Lavinia Cozmin, Margaret Schulz and Carolyn Steigman have given us a beautiful tree to enjoy throughout the holiday season. Be sure to stop by and get a closer look at the unique ornaments that adorn our tree. See more pics of the tree in the Photo Gallery. The Westlake Garden Club is also decorating a tree at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens for the GLOW Festival. Visit our website in a few days to see photos of that tree.

Owls in Ohio

November 20, 7 p.m. WGC Evening Meeting -  Come, give a HOOT! Owls in OHIO

Jim Tomko, President of the Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland,  will share his passion for birds and wildlife.  Twelve species of owls have been spotted in Ohio.  Several are residents, some are migrants, and a few are accidental visitors.  Interesting owl trivia will be revealed.  Some tips on how, when, and where to spot owls will be shared.  This is a powerpoint presentation and no live owls will be exhibited.  This chapter does not have a license to have captive wildlife. Our garden club Christmas trees have featured decorative owls in the past and they have always attracted a lot of positive attention.  Come learn about the real bird and why people are so fascinated by the owl.  

Please make reservations to Shirley at [email protected] or Kathy at 440-385-7566 or Claire at 440-835-2663 by November 17. 

Medical Marijuana

The Westlake Garden Club welcomes Dr. Dvora Nelson, M.D., co-founder of the Lakewood Medical Clinic, who will discuss Ohio’s newly implemented medical marijuana program. Dr. Nelson will speak to our club on Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. She will explain how medical marijuana can alleviate suffering from certain conditions and will emphasize the importance of working with a doctor to assure that the product that you get is tailored to your disease or condition. Dr Nelson will talk about a few of the conditions that Ohio deems eligible for a medical cannabis recommendation. This program is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Non-garden club members are asked to register with the Westlake Library.
