Holiday Greens Workshop

The Greens Workshop was a club tradition before I joined in 1982. The format has evolved and continues to evolve. In the 1990s we began presorting and bagging the greens so that each member could have a pleasant creative experience without having to compete for a share of greens and we added the finger-food buffet as a buffer between the workday and the workshop.

In more recent years we have encouraged members who are not participating in the workshop to nevertheless attend the buffet as a Deck the Halls Party. his year we served only cold beverages and only one person seemed to notice. We also used a new side entrance which obviated the need for a person to be posted at the door to let people into the event.

Some members participated for the first time making wreaths and arrangements. Experienced members made spectacular wreaths and table arrangements. The potluck buffet had a nice balance of sweet and savory.

Thank you to the set up committee: Doris Celarier, Bill Dean, Sharon Ferguson, Lorraine Fishback, Joyce Jones, Jennifer Newton and Donna Brandes. In the morning, we set up the tables, received the greens, sorted and bagged the greens, cleaned up the hall and set up the buffet tables. The result was a festive pleasant event
