Seven members of the Lodi Garden Club received certificates in recognition of their years of membership in and service to the club. Two members received certificates for 20 years of membership: Clara Bitterman and Gwen Tecklenburg.

The other five each had several more years of membership acknowledged because their 20-year status came at a time when only a few select members received certificates. President Jeanette Moore brought matters up to date by recognizing Mary Ellen Beckman, 36 years; Lida Mueller, 36 years; Dorothy Pendleton, 35 years; Arilee Pollard, 32 years; and June Silveira, 31 years.

In other business, Toni Miller gave an interesting talk on gourds: their history, types, uses, and how to grow them. She exhibited some of the decorative uses to which she has put them. For those who want to see more, there is a gourd festival in Folsom on the last Sunday on September.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
