December 7, 2023 - Annual Holiday Workshop with Gerri Gibney - 7:30 P.M. at the Library

We will be making a Christmas centerpiece or a wreath. The Garden Club supplies all the material you will need to create a beautiful creation for your table or as a fit.  If you are going to make a wreath, please bring three wire coat hangers to be used as the base.  Also, bring pruners and whatever greens you would like to add to your creation along with any doodads you wish to incorporate into your design.

There is no fee for this Workshop for members, if you are a visitor, please consider a donation to defray the costs of the container, greens, and floral foam the Garden Club provides.

Every one is invited to this annual fun event.  If you are planning to attend, please email Gerri at themerchantmouse@aol to let her know you are coming by December 3, 2023 or call her at 201 768-2615.
