The Takoma Horticultural Club Presents:
Holiday Centerpiece Workshop
This event is open to all!

Wednesday, November 30 at 7:30 pm
Heffner Community Center
42 Oswego Ave., Takoma Park, MD

In this make and take workshop we will provide a demonstration of how to create holiday centerpieces from live greens and decorative sprigs and then work with you to create your own centerpieces Ė one for you and one to donate to Saint Annís Center for Children and Families. Saint Annís provides shelter, training, and support for single mothers. St Anne's is having a Christmas Open House and these centerpieces will be used for the tables.

Please bring the following materials for your centerpieces: evergreen and/or dried seed cuttings (no longer than 8 inches); snips/pruners; gloves; small holiday ornaments. We will provide the cans and floral foam ready to go for the workshop.

Please RSVP to Becky Lavash at ralavash@gmail.com. We have space for about 20. This event is now open to non-members and their guests.

Please bring snacks to share, a recycled nametag to wear, and a small box to safely take home your centerpiece. They may end up being about 12+Ē in diameter.

If you want to check membership status, join or pay dues, please contact Carole (cagalati@rcn.com)
