Message from the Bermuda Run Garden Club President
For the Love of Flowers-
Looking Within and Reaching Out
Dear Garden Club Members,
Has it really been a year already that “For the Love of Flowers” we have been “Looking Within and Reaching Out”? What a great year we had! We planted containers, visited gardens, learned about scenic roadside flowers and learned that chocolate and wine really do go together. We sold lots of geraniums and shredded lots of paper, which enabled us to buy a $2500 Cog at Cognition, Davie County’s new interactive children’s museum. We were able to make a $1000 donation to A Storehousefor Jesus in honor of Marie Collins, who was retiring, and make an annual donation to the Davie County Library, and to
contribute to the Children’s Reading Program. We made darling little bouquets for Meals on Wheels at the Senior Center in March, June, September and December. We provided beautiful table arrangements for the Crosby Scholars Breakfast, Bermuda Run Cares dinner and the Storehouse for Jesus Luncheon. We provided turkey dinners at Thanksgiving, food throughout the year, blankets and pajamas in January for A Storehouse for Jesus. In October we participated at the Dixie Classic Fair. We did designs, submitted horticulture specimens, and brought in all kinds of plants in containers for competition in the Friday and Wednesday Flower Show. In November with the help of Bermuda Run Country Club and Lowe’s Foods we hosted the Exceptional Children in the Davie County School system for a wonderful Thanksgiving Feast serving over 100 children and teachers. Throughout the year several of our members volunteered to be a “special buddy” to a child at Pinebrook Elementary School. They have lunch at least once a month and periodically do gardening activities with the children. Finally, throughout the year we took turns taking care of the beautiful planters at our Post Office. No wonder the year flew by so quickly! We were busy ladies because…for the love of flowers we looked within ourselves and reached out to our Community making it a better place for people in Davie County. I am so looking forward to this next year!
