2017 Club members assisted 12 Atria residents make a spring arrangement. Originally planned for Valentine's day, there was a delay this year because of flu at Atria, so it was completed just after the holiday with a different container and floral colors. Fun was had by all as the ladies enjoyed the class and the finished arrangement they took away with them to their apartments. Thanks to Lynne and Deb for coordinating and teaching and to Rochelle, Sofi, and Roberta for helping the residents.

Notice that some picture show  "before" and "after". One half the finished arrangements are shown with their creator.

2016 Club members made arrangements this year with Atria residents. Former year arrangements were made for the Senior Center dance. Committee chair was Judy Lawton with Peg Thomas, Carrol Goetzinger Jan Gump, Mim Maurer, Deb Mack  and others.
