2015 Newcomers’ Social

On Feb. 13th, we had our newcomers’ social for garden club members who recently joined our club. Thank you to Marie H. for having the event at her home.

Members who are chairman/officers welcomed the new members and informed them of the many projects our club is involved in including small bedside floral arrangements/small plants that are donated monthly by members to hospice patients, our annual scholarship fundraiser crazy card party and luncheon, and weekly floral arrangements/plants that members loan for display at the Windermere Branch Library.

Newcomers Brunch Feb 2 2011

We all enjoyed meeting new members: Carolin Warren, Connie Black, Cannon Stoffell and 3 potential new members: Susan Carter, Karen Ann Blonn, Danielle Mikolaitis at the Newcomers’ Brunch.  The brunch was hosted by WGC member, Maria Hawke at her lovely home in Orlando.  The members brought food, we all networked briefly, then we all moved to the pool veranda where each Chairman of her Committe or Project presented her duties and the purpose of her Committee.

All new members are encouraged to get involved with the club activities.  Involvement in your garden club will ensure the utmost experience and you will get to know the other members quicker.
