Gar­den Club dec­o­rates Centreville

Record Observer - - News -

CENTREVILLE — Spread through­out the Arts Coun­cil build­ing in Centreville on the morn­ing of Thurs­day, Dec. 1., were all types of greens, branches, leaves and dec­o­ra­tions as the Queen Anne’s County Gar­den Club cre­ated ar­range­ments for the hol­i­day sea­son.

For more than 40 years, the Gar­den Club, com­posed now of about 40 mem­bers, has cre­ated flo­ral ar­range­ments and dec­o­rated the town for the hol­i­days hang­ing items on the court house, banks, the li­brary, lamps and poles, front doors of build­ings and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

Prior to Dec. 1, club mem­bers spent time gath­er­ing items to be used for the var­i­ous wreaths and de­signs. For the past two years, gar- den club mem­bers have “se­lec­tively pruned the trees” at the Aspen In­sti­tute, with its per­mis­sion, for items to use.

Each table in the Arts Coun­cil build­ing rep­re­sented a spe­cific area in town where that de­sign was go­ing to be hanged. In the mid­dle of the room were branches and all sorts of greens peo­ple could grab for their ar­range­ment.

As well as cre­at­ing ar­range­ments for the Town of Centreville, Gar­den Club mem­bers were asked to cre­ate two small items each to be sent to in­di­vid­u­als in hospice, nurs­ing homes and other shut-ins.
