  • Annual Spring Fashion Show "Sugar & Spice" March 27th at 11:00am

    Doesn’t “Sugar and Spice” make you envision wonderful things? Bring your sweet tooth and all your friends to our Luncheon and Fashion Show for a great afternoon of fun, fashion and prizes!

    Dillards will provide outfits both sweet and spicy to get you ready for summer in Florida. The real star of the show will be our Raffle Table. We are featuring designer handbags and customized gift baskets, along with a few other surprises.

    You can buy tickets from Club members or Patty Tomka (pbtomka@hotmail.com or 363-6086). The $35 cost provides lunch and a donation to the Home and Garden Club which goes toward beautifying Deercreek. We will have tables of 10, so when you get your group together, let Patty know and she will reserve a table for you. Invite your game group, your family, your new neighbors or your old friends. And the beautiful centerpieces will be given as door prizes! But you must be there to get one.

    The raffle tickets will be sold only at the Luncheon, so remember to bring a little extra cash. No, we’re not set up to use card readers yet! Cost: 1 for $5, 3 for $10, 7 for $20 and 20 for $50.

    We hope to see all of you there. But if you miss the Fashion Show, you are welcome to come to our next regular meeting at 10:00 am on Tuesday, April 24. We’re always happy to see new faces.

    Tuesday, February 27 at 10am "Creating a Terrarium"

    The first terrarium was developed by botanist Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward in 1842 to transport plant specimens from Britain to Australia and keep them alive during the month’s long journey. But soon they became ornate creations proudly displayed in all the posh Victorian parlors. They have gone in and out of style ever since. It may be time to bring them back once again!

    We’ve asked Amelia Bifano from the fabulous Rockaway Garden Center to show us how to create terrariums for our homes. There is a science behind the construction and the plants used, so come and see what will work for you. Do you want to make a Fairy Garden for your grandkids or a grownup version with tropical plants and maybe a quartz stone to look like a waterfall? With retirement and travel my house plants all withered from neglect and were replaced with *GASP* silk orchids!! I’m thinking this may be a way to have real plants again!

    This meeting is sure to pull you out of the February Funk and start you planning for Spring. Stay for lunch and make new friends. We’re a cheerful group and always happy to see new faces.

    If you are new to Deercreek or haven’t joined any of the groups in the neighborhood, come and try us out and check the schedule of monthly programs. We often stay for lunch together after the meetings, so you can get to know your neighbors. Call our Membership Chairs, Carol D’Onofrio 519-0924 or Karen Rutland 219-4135 for more information.
