End of Year Luncheon and Installation of Officers

As the Deercreek Home and Garden Club closes out another successful year, we are looking forward to getting together for a Spring Luncheon to spotlight our programs and elect the officers for next year. It takes a lot of willing hands to make everything happen smoothly and we have a great group: 4 Officers, plus 18 Committees involving 35 pairs of hands. In truth, we handle more paperwork than plants but our fundraising focus is on providing extra things to beautify Deercreek. If you care about our neighborhood, come and join us in keeping it beautiful! Last year we had a Kitchen Gadget exchange. This year we are doing a ‘Book Exchange’ after lunch, so bring one book to trade. Fiction, non-fiction, 100 Ways to Use Leftover Chocolate, 200 Diet Tips, Landscaping in FL, Best Sellers, Beach Reads, Book Club selections etc. One book per person.

We had such a good time at our Fashion Show in March, ‘Lavende en Provence’, that we wanted to share some of the photos with you. The decorations were lovely, with fresh lavender sachets for each guest and bouquets of silk lavender in metal baskets for door prizes. The fashions from Dillard’s were gorgeous and wearable. But the star of the show was the Raffle Table! Filled with designer handbags, themed baskets, gift cards to great restaurants and an original hand-painted table by our own Nancy Jantz, the place was buzzing as the ladies chose which bowl to put their raffle tickets in. While having a good time, we were also raising funds for next year’s projects. Thank you for coming and helping us do this. It looked like everyone had a good time!

The Home and Garden Club breaks for the summer and will resume with our August ‘Golden Acorn’ Luncheon to honor someone in the community, who has gone above and beyond.
