Hi all,

Wow! Where has the time gone?? We are in full swing planning for all of the MGC holiday festivities and events. I have a lot of information to cover in preparation for our November meeting so please read this entire email and I will try to make it brief.

Garden Therapy Christmas List- Most of the residents had someone claim them at our last meeting but I do know unfortunately there were  a few still left that were not claimed. If you did get a resident please bring the $25 gift card to the November meeting along with the card you picked. Sue and Diane will also be collecting items to give to the residents so if you would like to donate anything please bring the items to the meeting on Nov 18th. Please NO HOME MADE FOODS!! Items can  be lotions, books, games, coloring books, snacks or anything you can think of that they might like. Also please mark your calendars for 12/11/19 @ 10:30 as this will be the next Garden Therapy Session. Sue and Diane please feel free to add to this if I have left something out.

Bedford Christmas Home Tour- Please bring greenery to the Nov meeting to make Garland. Gay Carpenter will not be at our next meeting but has so kindly offered us to cut some greenery from her yard if needed. It is also my understanding that Rosemary Drennen has a wonderful yard full of options- Rosemary would you allow us to also cut from your yard? Please soak your greens overnight. A gentleman also was going to contact Donna Broomall and has offered magnolia and holly from his yard. If you have any newspapers that you can bring to cover the tables that will be great! Friendly reminder NO BOXWOOD Allowed to be used in any of the greenery or arrangements.

Bedford Christmas Home Tour- Many of you requested to see the Hepinstall Home prior to making greenery so I have arranged this for Monday November 11th @ 10:00 am. I will be going of course and hope that those of you asking will plan to join me as well. The address is : 103 North Branch Rd Bedford VA. Please let me know if you plan on going and we can meet at Bethleham Chruch and caravan or carpool to the home.

Bedford Christmas Home Tour Tickets- Thank you to Diane Killup for getting our tickets to the PRINT N PAPER shop on Scruggs road. Please start selling tickets ASAP and pick them up at the print store. They are also available for purchase at our three ticket outlets ( Moneta Farm & Tractor, Lake Nails and the SML Coffee Shop.) Please please spread the word!

MGC Christmas Luncheon- If you plan to attend our annual Christmas luncheon please bring cash or check $15 and give to Marty Bowers. Checks made out to Moneta Garden Club. The deadline for RSVP is Dec 1st. We hope to see you there and please do not forget about the star of the show the auction!
Sign Up Sheet- There will be a sign up sheet for shifts at the Hepinstall home for the day of the event. Please plan to either help with florals and greenery or hosting the house the day of.

Our next meeting will be held Monday November 18th at 12:00. After our program speaker our primary focus will be garland and greenery for the home tour!

If anyone has any additional information to add to the above please be sure to reply to everyone .


Thanks ,
