Maggie Stucky, The Queen of Nurturing!

Maggie Stuckey is giving a party – a thank you party for some very special people here at the beach –people who many of us know and love!  And we’re all invited to say “thank you” with her — and to her, also, for that matter!  First. the particulars:

WHEN Sunday, April 14th, 2:00 p.m.
WHERE – Performing Arts Center, Long Beach
GUESTS OF HONOR – Clay Nichols, Sandy Stonebreaker. Mary Funk, Margaret Staudenraus, Dobby Wiegardt, (Marian Lee, Nyel Stevens — in absentia) Lee Johnston, Janice Yang.
ENTERTAINMENT – Music by Sea Strings (Janet & Bill Clark and Ray Hunt), Soulful Variations (Jayson Sheaux and Lee Moos) and Fred Carter.
  Presented by Time Enough Books in a Special Display!     

Maggie  is inviting all of us to come to celebrate with her as she thanks her special guests for their fabulous contributions to her latest book, The Container Victory Garden, A Beginner’s Guide to Growing Your Own Groceries.  And just so you know — Sunday, April 14th is National Gardening Day!  What a fabulous way to get the gardening season off to a great start!

If you already have the book, you know that Maggie’s inspiration for its theme came from the Victory Gardens of World War Two (AND World War One, for that matter!).  Maggie has always been about container gardening and during Covid’s “Sheltering Time” she was inspired to return to that theme for a book that could be helpful in a much different time of need.  As the book unfolded, she expanded on the possibilities of container gardening, many of which are illustrated in the fabulous artwork so reminiscent of the poster art of the 1940s war years.

And, Maggie reached out to those who remembered the Victory Gardens from the 1940s — the war years of their youth.  Many  of her guests of honor on Sunday will be people whose stories are interspersed throughout the book.  Such a wonderful party it will be!  See you there!!!
P.S. And if you remember any of those songs popular during the WWII era, I have it on good authority that we get to sing along!
