Ted Chat: Weed Show Preparation, Saturday 9/17/2022

Have you ever wanted to submit an entry to the Twentynine Palms Historical Society's Annual Weed Show? Have you ever wanted to win? Ted Meyers, long-time Wonder Valley resident, has won the Weed Show multiple times (honestly, we've lost count!) and returns to the WV Community Center to share his winning secrets with us.

SATURDAY, 9/17, 10 a.m - noon at the Wonder Valley Community Center 

Ted will be here to explain the Weed Show's strict rules; the differences in categories; choosing a display base; collecting and using weeds effectively; choices of accessories and tips and tricks.

Three things the audience will take away from the presentation: 
  • How to construct a display.
  • The importance of following all rules.
  • There are no monetary prizes involved, but the fun, the feeling of accomplishment and the possibility of winning bragging rights for a full year are worth the effort!
This is NOT a hands on class so you don't have to bring anything but yourselves. Ted will be doing all the demonstrating.

The 2022 Annual Weed Show is scheduled for Saturday & Sunday November 5 & 6 at the Old School House Museum, 6760 National Park Drive, 29 Palms.

Chit-Chat & Chew - Saturday September 10, 2022

Chit-Chat & Chew, the monthly 2nd Saturday neighborhood get-together returns Saturday, September 10, 2022, from 8 a.m. till 10 a.m. at the Wonder Valley Community Center, 80526-1/2 Amboy Road, Wonder Valley. 

The early morning monthly gathering is where Wonder Valley neighbors, weekenders, and visitors gather to meet without an agenda to share news, stories and the history of Wonder Valley, past, present and future.

Chit-Chat & Chew has been a wild success and is a fun way to grow community connections and build neighborhood resilience before folks start their Saturday errands and continue their chores. Coffee, Espresso and tea, along with other refreshments and pastries will be provided.
