Flower Arranging for Garden Club Members 

In addition to some outstanding professional speakers at the monthly

meeting, members also enjoy a twice yearly Flower Arranging Class

with fresh or silk flowers.

Our first demo by member, Patti G will demonstrate how to decorate a

lantern for Fall and Winter.  You do not need to bring a lantern or

supplies to decorate it. The time is 10:00 AM at Saint John's Episcopal

Church, 834 Durham Road, Wake Forest.

Sign up at the September meeting. If you think you may be interested in decorating your own

lantern after seeing Patti's presentation you may want to consider buying your lantern now.In another month there might not be as many choices available as there are now. Walmart just got in a large assortment of lanterns on August 20th. Hobby Lobby also has lanterns.
