May 9, 2018 Planting Mother's Day Baskets
at Stanwood Elementary School
Members work on the Mayor's Garden
June Fling - June 10, 2019
This event is held the last month of our garden club year which runs from September through June. It's a celebration of the year's accomplishments. Each year the theme changes and members or groups of members are encouraged to adopt a table and decorate it with their version of the event theme. This year's theme is 'Ode to a Flower' in which each table will be decorated with a particular flower in mind.
At this event the Roberta Lothian award is presented, the annual $2,000 scholarship is awarded and, depending on the committee choice, a silent auction or other fun fundraiser is held the duration of the event.
This celebration is for current paid member's of the Arlington Garden Club. Guests are welcome at our September through May meetings.
In July of 2018 Arlington Garden Club members presented Karen and Charlie Ricketts with a metal sculpture fountain, handcrafted by Dennis Cant, as a thank you for the many years they hosted Craft Day at Karen's.
Craft Day at Karen's - held in July each year
Each July members of the Arlington Garden Club gather at member Karen Rickett's wonderful garden to play and create craft projects. Each year new crafts are taught, mostly by members. As much as possible we keep the craft projects garden related. A Wednesday night potluck is then held to pick up the hand-made treasures and enjoy the company of members and their guests.
Members must sign up in advance as space is limited. Details appear in the Garden Scoop newsletter prior to the event. Small fees may be required for craft projects to cover materials.
