    Deercreek Home and Garden Club

    This month we are showing off our brand-new logo created by Nancy Jantz. Isn’t it great? We are so blessed to have her creative ability on tap! We thought that after being active for 25 years we needed an official logo to present to the public. And we need to keep reminding you that we are not only focused on gardening and landscaping, but on the many aspects of living in a community. Our monthly meetings cover a wide variety of topics to inform and entertain and introduce new interests to explore. But, besides our main goal of beautifying Deercreek, we also want to create the opportunity for neighbors to come together and become friends. With so many houses in Deercreek and Edgewater – and no front porches for visiting – we want to help you meet your neighbors and become part of the Deercreek community. Look over our web page to see what we are doing and who is doing it. http://www.deercreekcc.com/garden-club We have 16 committees working on different projects during the year, so if you want to jump in and be part of the group, let our Membership Chair Julie Howell know. 519-8005

    Another change we made this year was to separate the Fashion Show tickets from the Membership renewal process. Our year runs from August to May so we will be sending out the renewal forms starting in May this year and you can renew before the 2019-2020 year starts in August with our Golden Acorn Award luncheon. Forms will be sent by e-mail so you can look it over and make suggestions for future projects or programs – or sign up for a committee. Then get your $20 check, made out to ‘Deercreek Home and Garden Club’, to Julie Howell at 8257 Bay Tree Lane.

    End of Year Luncheon & Installation of Officers

    Tuesday May 28 at 11:30

    May brings an end to our year of programs, since we take June and July off. But this is one of our most important meetings of the year, when we install the officers for next year. Please make a reservation for the luncheon with Sharon Coleman 904-314-7634 or sharoncoleman268@comcast.net.

    We are celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2019 and would like to thank the ladies who launched this group to help beautify Deercreek. They met at the home of Carson Phillips on November 8, 1993: Hanan Akel, Sharyn Allen, Jane Astor, Karen Brockett, Marilyn D’Augustino, Sue Gover, Gail Hardy, Nancy Jantz, Diane Knisel, Ingrid Magsam, Marie Malloy, Joann Pun, Nancy Sambuchi, Cheryl Stokes, Nancy Thompson, Joyce Turney and Helen Zapf. Their first project was to decorate the Guard House! We hope we have lived up to their expectations! We will be displaying all the photo scrapbooks that show our history through the years. Nancy Jantz has been our Historian and Keeper of the Books for many years and they are beautifully done. You will want to look through them to see old friends and bring back memories – and laugh at hairstyles and clothing choices!

    Our speaker this month is Holly Keris, Chief Curator at the Cummer Museum. We went there on a Field Trip several years ago to see the fabulous gardens and statuary. But they have had hurricane damage since then and she will tell us how they have worked to make it beautiful again.

    Our officers for 2020 will be: President, Sharon Coleman; VP, Catherine Wood; Treasurer, Julia Watkins; Co-Secretarys, Paige Yauger & Jill Cole. There are 17 Committees helping them run the show!

  • Appreciation Lunch for Deercreek Grounds Crews

    Tuesday May 7

    Appreciation Lunch for Deercreek Grounds Crews
    Each May we say Thank You to the many workers who keep Deercreek looking good by hosting a lunch for them at the Tennis Center. Our members bring in LOTS of food to show them how much we appreciate their work throughout the year. We’re inviting Danny Connors’ crew, Dan Hemmerle’s crew, the Aquatic Systems guys and the Marsh Landing Mgmt. Company to join us this year. We expect about 35.  Marcia Rose and Debi Gifford are in charge of this if you would like to help.
