MOUNTAIN TOP: The Mountain Top Garden Club will hold its monthly meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 22 at the Marion Sutherland Kirby Library, 35 Kirby Avenue.

The guest speaker will be Ron Burger, co-owner of George Burger and Sons Garden Center, Mountain Top. The topic will be planning your landscape for year-round color and interest.

Burger will discuss how to plan your landscape and measure in order to get the look you want and how to choose the correct plants for our geographical area.

Burger holds a degree in horticulture (nursery management) from Pennsylvania College of Technology. He also attended horticulture classes at Hazleton Area Career Center. He recently chaperoned a group of college students to Kansas State University for a horticulture field trip as part of National Student Career Days. He has spoken to numerous groups and organizations throughout eastern Pennsylvania. He also hosts a television segment on WYLN in Hazleton called The Garden Spot, which airs on Tuesday and Thursdays during the weather segment at 5 p.m.

The meeting will conclude with questions and answers. Group participation is encouraged. The Garden Club is newly formed and is always looking for new members.
