Members enjoy a flowers arranging program.

 

The Rutland Garden Club members will soon be active again planting and assisting in the beautification of the city’s gardens and several store front window boxes.

In the meantime,  when the members  are not planting in the gardens, they are busy organizing other community programs. They can be found sharing their love for flower arranging in programs at several of the assisted living facilities and the Boy’s & Girl’s Club of Rutland. 

In February, members joined the residents at The Pines for a workshop on flower arranging. Members Cynthia Limburger and Nikki Apponowich led the demonstration. Limburger did the prototype and organized the flowers for each person to duplicate the arrangement. Other members joined in to help where needed. Each resident left with a flower arrangement of their own. Valentines were distributed courtesy of Ann Wilson and signed by the members. A Valentine poster was also provided, which was created by Susan Wolhunter’s daughter. The program was truly enjoyed by all.
