Garden Club organised the fourth ‘Fashions in Bloom’ fashion show for the community of Celebration. Thirty members helped with the event, including nine models. We had five vendors in the lobby selling a variety of products, foods, gift cards, wooden trivets. Janet Carr from Sarasota showcased her clothing, jewelry and handbags. Cheese and wine was served throughout the evening. It was a fun event and enjoyed by everyone who attended. It raised more funds towards our program of donations to the community.
The Club received an application from Cheryl Cassano, Assistant Principal at Celebration K-8 school for funds to enable the school to purchase a Tower Garden, the full text of the application is available in the members section of the website. Funds were allocated for school projects earlier in the year and this project exactly fitted the bill. Tricia, Francesca and Dave met Mrs Cassano, Assistant Principal, Laure Dejeant and Mr Fiorito at the school and presented them with a check for $1385.95. This covers the cost of the purchase of the Tower Garden and all the items necessary to use it. It is hoped that Garden Club can be involved with further projects that the school has planned.
Debi, Mike, Tricia and Dave manned a booth at Food Truck Friday to advertise the upcoming Holiday Home Tour and to sell tickets. There was lots of interest and ticket sales. This is a lively community event held once a month alongside the 851 building.
Fifteen members ran the booth at the town Expo at the rear of Town Hall. The booth was decorated with pine straw and an assortment of plants for sale. Many residents placed orders for pine straw and purchased plants. Proceeds of the sale were for the benefit of our scholarship fund, Give Kids The World and our civic beautification projects.
