JoAnne Danton, a member of Seaside’s Sou’Wester Garden Club, displays her two award-winning photos. Danton, of Seaside, won first place in the Garden Category and honorable mention in the Pets Category during the Oregon State Federation of Garden Clubs’ state convention in Coos Bay in June. “Photography is something I had done in the past and continue to do for pleasure, primarily,” Danton said. The garden club, a nonprofit organization that fundraises to give scholarships to local high school seniors and hosts the annual Green Thumb Plant Sale, is seeking new members. The club generally meets the fourth Wednesday of each month and is open to the public. The next meeting is Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 10 a.m. at the Bob Chisholm Community Center. The featured program is “Getting to Know Your Plant.” Then, Nov. 18 at Dennis’ 7 Dees Landscaping and Garden Center on U.S. Highway 101, attendees can learn how to make wreaths.
