Apr. 3 – Officer Installation and a workshop

Our current board

We have lots planned for this meeting

  • Member Ginza prior to the program and meeting
  • Installation of officers
  • Workshop making arrangements in another members container.
For the election:

Our board is only as effective as our members are willing to help.  Please contact any member of the incoming slate of officers or the nominating committee and offer to serve on a committee.  Your new board wants to have all the committees and their chairs set up before the end of the season.  Please help them.

For the Member ginza:
  • Please reserve a full or half 8 foot table in advance by contacting Margy Metzler.
  • Bring your items to sell
  • If you have items that you wish to donate or perhaps sell to the ginza rather than sell yourself, contact Nancy Peterson, our ginza chairman.
For the Workshop Container Exchange:
  • Make a workshop reservation by contacting Margy Metzler.  
    • There is no fee for this workshop
  • Bring a container you think someone else would enjoy using to create an arrangement just for you
  • Bring some flowers and greenery
  • Bring your hasami, trash bag, greenery from your garden; flowers will be provided
