2017 Craft Day at Karen's
Craft Day at Karen's - July 2018
2018 - A Monday date in July is to be announced
For many years members of the Arlington Garden Club have gathered at member Karen Rickett's wonderful garden and shade house during the month of July to play and create craft projects. Each year new crafts are taught, mostly by members. A Wednesday night potluck is then held to pick up your hand-made treasures and enjoy the company of members and their guests.
Members must sign up in advance as space is limited. Details will appear in the Garden Scoop newsletter prior to the event and sign-up is necessary. Small fees may be required for craft projects to cover materials.

Christmas in July theme
June Fling - June 11, 2018
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.
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.

June Fling Table Décor
Info for 2018
Ann Ostrander reports that this year's theme for the 2018 June Fling will be 'Ode to a Flower'. The theme would enable each table to celebrate one flower.
In June there should be a plethora fo flowers to choose from: Alstromeria, Corn Flowers, Delphinium, Freesia, Lilies, Columbine, Coreopsis, Dianthus, Foxglove, Geranium, Hydrangea, Daisies, Iris, Poppies, Phlox, Snapdragon, Rhododendrons, Roses, Stock, Sweet peas, Dogwood and more. Decorating a table should be easy this year - just bring in your favorite June flower or borrow one from a friend's garden.
Ann would like to have a dozen volunteers (or teams) to decorate a table for the June Fling. At the March meeting she will pass around a sign-up sheet.
