Plantation Lakes Garden Club members and guests each made two or three small patriotic-themed flower arrangements at our November meeting to honor local veterans.
Members of the Projects Committee delivered the arrangements to nearby Atlantic Shores Rehab and Health Center in Millsboro and the Delaware Hospital for Veterans in Milford. Brenda Zullo gave a tour of Atlantic Shores to committee members and introduced them to some of the veteran recipients.
Earlier in the meeting, we went around the room so members and guests could talk about veterans in their own families or spheres of influence. This was a fun and easy floral design project that was demonstrated by program presenter Margaret Woda.
Many thanks to Gardeners by the Sea members Lisa Arni and Jean Sewald who allowed some of our members to trim greenery from their shrubbery for this project. One of the downfalls of living in a new community is that we don't have any mature shrubs of our own!
Plantation Lakes Garden Club hopes to make this an annual tradition.
