What’s happening NOW! Summer 2014
1. Check out the pictures Gail took at the GCFM’s WALLACK LECTURE on May 21st at Regis College in Weston. See them under the photo albums tab, then go to “Field Trips” and “5/21/14 GCFM Floral Fantasy.” Ten of our members bought tickets and were amazed by Marie-Francoise Deprez’s skill and talent. Her designs were an interesting combination of structures, supports, and flowers. Our Club members recognized the influence of Gregor Lersch, to whom Marie-Francoise gave credit as a major inspiration. Pat Cammet has given our Club two workshops on Lersch; we have built two or three of his pieces with her. Pat was with us and she was as delighted and entertained as the rest of us. Enjoy the pictures.
2. Soon after our last meeting of the year, the GCFM awarded the Community Garden Club of Cohasset with four merit awards for our Yearbook, work with students, as well as our fifty year old history of caring for Cohasset’s public gardens, now evident as Lightkeepers, the Cohasset Historical Society, and Constitution Square.
3. The last sentence is a perfect segue to our work in Cohasset’s gardens from May 28 to October 1, every other Wednesday. Look under the Newsletter tab for the final newsletter of the 2013-14 year to see if your name is one of the 23 listed members who need to contact the committee to complete the garden work requirement.
4. SUMMER FLOWER SHOW! Remember that the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts will host a flower show, “TIME AFTER TIME” at the Marshfield Fair on route 3A Marshfield. There will be two floral entry dates on August 15 and August 20. For complete information, go to the GCFM’s website.
Enjoy our Photo Albums - thanks to Gail’s wonderful photography we’ll have creative and natural design ideas on hand to adapt for your own floral decorating.
Come visit one of our monthly meetings at which a presenter will discuss fine points of horticulture or show slides of exotic gardens from around the world – actually arrange flowers using new and exciting techniques!
Every fourth Tuesday of the month, September through November and January through March, we meet at the Second Congregational Church for coffee at 9 a.m. and for speaker presentation after a short business meeting at 9:30. We offer horticulture meetings on the second Tuesday of the month and design workshops on the third Tuesday, usually at the Lightkeeper’s Cottage, 9:30.
