The Mansfield Garden Club met Wednesday, December 19 for its Christmas party. Members and guests enjoyed a Christmas meal with all members contributing food. Games for the meeting included an ugly sweater contest, best socks contest and a memory contest. Also, members guessed how many pieces of candy were in an old fashioned Mason jar. Velda Neilson won the socks contest with Emma Mouser winning the memory contest.

Beth McLaren gave information for growing and taking care of poinsettia plants. The temperature should be 60 to 70 degrees and placed in a sunny spot near the window. You should water them once or twice a week. The easiest way to do this is to use ice cubes. With a sixinch pot should take 6 cubes and an 8-inch pot around 8 cubes every 3 to 5 days. You should treat the poinsettia the same as annuals when the plant becomes unkempt, put it in the compost pile and recycle the container.
