General Meetings

2017 April General Meeting

On Thursday, April 13th we had a general meeting with informal coffee and “white elephant” sale.

Our hostesses were Cannon S. and incoming hostess chairman Carolyn B. They made and brought some very delicious snacks and beverages as well as lovely centerpieces. They did a wonderful job.

Our program was Florida Federation of Garden Club (FFGC) Master Judge & FFGC Floral Design Instructor Lorraine Gabler who demonstrated how to make several Easter/Spring floral designs. She had many helpful hints and ideas.  She even used containers that were not waterproof and made them waterproof by adding another container inside.  Afterward, Lorraine’s designs were raffled off.

Lorraine Gabler Floral Designs:

Lorraine used “easter grass” inside the clear vase and at the base of her design.
