Ways and Means
co-chairs: Sharon Lemke, Elizabeth Cali
Visit the CBGC STORE at our next Meeting! Purchase gloves, streak-less cloths, and oasis.
OPPORTUNITY TICKETS (formerly
50/50): Your GENEROUS donation of between
$1 and $5 ($5 being the best bargain because
you get 6 tickets) helps defray the expense of setting up the chairs at our General Meetings. The remaining amount collected is awarded to the winner of the drawing! So look for the person with the basket of tickets and purchase yours each meeting. Everyone wins when you purchase OPPORTUNITY TICKETS at our General Meetings!
If you purchase bulbs from
Brent and Becky’s Bulbs (from
their catalog or on line),
remember to ask that your
purchase be credited to Chesapeake Bay Garden Club. Every 6 months, Brent and Becky’s sends our club a check for 25% of the amount club members have spent. This is a simple way for our club to earn some ‘Bloomin Bucks’!
Nancy Ficklin’s Christmas Wreaths and Trees Fundraiser
Another Huge Success
Organized by Elizabeth Calli and Sharon Lemke
Even the rain didn’t stop us! The club used the "rain date" schedule to pick greens for wreath making on Tuesday, November 27th, at the Versailles Estate in Burgess, on Ways Creek Road, and in Heathsville.
On Thursday, November 29th, most members made wreaths or trees, a few made bows, and one or two served as very tough quality control inspectors! Delicious homemade soups and desserts were served for lunch which was organized by Susan Brandli. Let’s not forget the pleasure of working with friends, old and new.
