October 5, 2021 – 11:45 a.m. – Sensational Dahlias -- Something for Everyone

Let’s show support for an aspiring floral artist, Erica Olivera of Front Porch Florals.

She is excited to share and demonstrate her vision of a fall bouquet using seasonally fresh flowers and autumnal hues.

December 7, 2021 - 11:45 a.m. – Members Helping Members

Our own Lynn Moore and Jessie Murphy will guide us in making a unique holiday decoration.  Suggestions could be a wreath, a pinecone tree, or a swag.  Send Jessie and Lynn your idea, so they can help with materials and guidance.

Hostess: Nancy DeGirolamo with Joyce Ripley & Andrea Dion Purdy

 

December 8, 2021 – Holiday Ornament Exchange

Baubles, bangles, or beads:  bring a holiday trinket to exchange with a member.  A poinsettia in a teacup, ornaments in a wine glass, a winter scene in a glass bowl -- any creative bauble you find fun or interesting.  Coordinated with D’Anne Olsen.
