While the garden club does not host a monthly meeting in December, there are a few opportunities for members to meet and celebrate the holiday season. On December 7th, about 45 members gathered at the Yardley Inn for a festive luncheon and included a display of donated raffle items garnering over $280 for the club!
Among the donations were a lottery tree, poinsettias, gift certificates, paintings, floral arrangements and wreaths, seasonal soaps and candles, and homemade cookies. A collection was also taken for the Bucks Courier Times “Give A Christmas” annual fundraiser and we are happy to report that the generous total donation to the cause was over $200.
December 7th was a busy day for 20 of the club members, who also participated in a holiday arrangement workshop conducted by Deb Pomroy (and her pup Finley) at Season’s Garden Center. For a nominal fee, they were supplied with a basket, oasis, fresh greens, large and small carnations, pine cones, and baby’s breath. Some attendees also included personal effects with ribbon and shiny ornaments.
If you missed either occasion this year, plans are already in the works for December of 2023.
