Forest Hill Garden Club
The Garden Club's first program on October 18, 2021, was a flower arranging tutorial given by Eva Monroe. Accompanied by instructions and stories, Eva produced five beautiful arrangements which were sold, at a bargain price, at the end of the program. The clubhouse was decorated by Eva and the chairs were set out with help from Eva's husband Mike. He also put the chairs and tables away at the end of the program. We will have to bestow an honorary membership on Mike. Photos and videos of the Fall Floral can be viewed here.
Anna Bolechowski organized things in the kitchen and she brought the two fall bouquets produced by Nancy Hagosian from the shed. Thank you both. A wonderful tea, chaired by Saundra McCormick, with an assortment of sandwiches, cakes and cookies awaited the hungry members. Saundra's helpers were Nancy Broden and Ingeborg. Great job Saundra, thank you.
A small business meeting was held at the beginning and Kathe Farrell, our FHA liaison, is in touch with President Tom Rocca. A number of 58 attendants appears to be the limit for our holiday party. Kathe will also see that we will get greeneries from the Association for our Wreath Making Day in December.
Darlene Hartman gave a brief preview of our upcoming program in November. All is arranged with the West Portal bookstore for our Annual Book Fair. A decision will be made if we can invite guests to that program. Darlene is also in charge of the refreshments and she already has a team of helpers. Eva will be in charge of the annual fund raising for the SF-Marin Food Bank. Please bring your checkbooks and be as generous as you can. All members attending the book fair must be fully vaccinated and please come with mask on.
There are still few seats available at the Holiday Party on Monday, December 6. Please refer to the October Bulletin for the info flyer. This annual event promises to be a joyous occasion to kick off the holiday season. Come dressed up and have fun with friends and neighbors!
Meanwhile, stay healthy and safe,
New Member: We are delighted to welcome Erin Zerega as our newest members on Castenada. Erin is a neighbor of Laura Outsen, who invited her.
