Garden Club decorates Centreville
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.
