Cornivirus Cancels Events Until Further Notice

 

Message From Our Club President:

Due to the legitimate concerns over the health of the general public, we, the WGC, will continue to follow the government’s request for social distancing.

Our April meetings and garden clean up is cancelled.  Our May meeting is likely to be cancelled too.  We are looking into alternate dates for the flower show.

We will not meet face to face until the shelter in place/social distancing orders  are lifted.

Our program topic was on Pot-et- Fleur Flower Arrangements which is the marriage of potted plants and cut flowers. It is not a mini landscape or scene but has all of the form and the flow of traditional floral arrangement. President Vicki H. and Co-Flower Show Chairman Maureen T. demonstrated several designs and many of them were raffled off. Thank you!
