We had an afternoon in the warmth of the courtyard!

On March 18, nineteen of us joined forces to create lovely miniature planter boxes for patients in the VA Hospital of San Francisco. Thank you to the Chairs of the event, Darlene Hartman, Amy Hartman and Eva Monroe. They organized everythinhg and made it easy to assemble small clear plastic boxes into brightly colored succulent planters with a fun array of tiny plants they provided.

Succulent Planting Day is one of our community Service events. The arragements will be given to military veterans who are in the hospital, as a reminder that we are thinking of them. Additional planters were made to give to some of our members who are housebound or in need of our thoughts and kindness.

I would also like to thanks Nancy Hagosian and Anna Bolechowski for their beautiful arrangements and set up of the inside tables where everyone could enjoy tea, coffee and a sweet treat. Thank you to Ingeborg McGlynn, Laura Outsen, and Darlene Hartman for the cookies and cakes they brought, our celebrated reward for a nice afternoon of planting.
