December 2018- 7 members of the club created a table (tablecloths, dishes, glass, favors, centerpiece, utensils) as did other clubs. Thanks to Janice's' hard work we had tree folded napkins along with our other items that she, Noreen and Rochelle brought. She even washed all the dishes and glass! Brenda created favors that she and Bobbie funded, Annette created the centerpiece. At the end of the pot luck meal provided by the RIFGC board , a silent auction was held for all the table centerpieces and ours raised $50 for the Hasbro children's garden project elected by RIFGC.  Linda did one of the independent wreaths, hanging on a wall that were also auction and those items raised between  $40 and $80 each. Lastly, Super hostess, Janice baked a wonderful warm loaf of Tuscan bread for us!!!
