Happy Holidays Everyone!
I am reminded with each encounter with every one of you what a special place Naples is. The women in this Club do such a remarkable job of every event they tackle and truly care about our community. I am so proud of our Club!
Our Holiday Luncheon, and “A Sleigh Ride Together” “Spark of Love” Toy Drive at Virginia Country Club is just around the corner, Please ﬁll out your reservation forms December 11th. and turn them in by December 2nd. This event is always popular and ﬁlls up fast. The ﬁre truck will come again this year to pick up all the toys and gift cards that are donated to many needy families.
Our annual is at Luminaria Night Tuesday, December 10th 7:30pm. Please come and enjoy the night of singing Christmas Carols led by the Bayshore Community Choir. It is always such a beautiful event.
I wish you and your families a safe and joyful holiday season. I hope you all are able to spend special time with your loved ones. Please keep those in need in your prayers and charity. I thank you all for your incredible commitment to our community and look forward to a very Happy New Year!
Harmony in the garden
The fertile soil and gentle climate of the South were perhaps the reason the first garden club in America was founded there. The Ladies Garden Club of America was formed in 1891 in Athens, GA. Garden clubs quickly expanded throughout the South and then across our nation. The National Garden Club, of which we are members, was established in 1929. These clubs were not just concerned with teas and genteel Flower Shows or improvement of members’ private gardens. Many clubs were the earliest advocates of civic beautification, planting of street trees, maintenance of parks, and campaigns against blight especially billboards. Restoration and maintenance of nearby historic gardens was also a priority of many clubs.
