The Seaside Garden Club kicks off their season with Books in Bloom and a Plant Swap on September 12th at the Manchester Community Center. Doors open at 7:00 pm for social time and the program begins at 7:30. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome, guests $5. Annual membership is now open for $30. Sign up now to get your name in our yearbook and enjoy some terrific programs. The club meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month through June.
Members are creating floral arrangements (can work in pairs) inspired by a book of their choosing. This is similar to the Art in Bloom at the Museum of Fine Arts. Have fun, get creative and expose the hidden artist inside. You can chose any kind of book as your inspiration: fiction, nonfiction, children’s, cookbook, travel book, any book that strikes your fancy. We’re asking those who do arrangements to donate them for our raffle supporting the scholarship fund. Keep that in mind when choosing a container that you may or may not get back.
The club is also sponsoring a Plant Swap! Fall is a great time for transplanting perennials so bring a plant and take a plant. Let’s share the wealth with tried and true plants from our gardens. Anything goes here, bring whatever you have that others would like too!
