Talbot County Women’s Club hosting flower mart, craft fair
The Talbot County Women’s Club is hosting the Garden Gate Fundraiser Flower Mart & Craft Fair on April 22 through April 24 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at the Talbot County Women’s Club located at 18 Talbot Lane in Easton.
The Flower Mart will offer wide selections of geraniums, annuals, perennials, and herbs, as well as hanging baskets and garden planters for both sun and shade. The Craft Fair will offer a selection of outdoor living and garden décor items from pots and planters to bird feeders and birdhouses, as well as locally-made jewelry and other gift items.
“Our Flower Mart and Fair is just in time for Mother’s Day gift-giving and spring planting and offers the opportunity to shop safely outside. The goal of this year’s event is to raise funds to be able to support our numerous service projects as well as support the restoration efforts for the historic house where the Club meets,” said Nancy Lutes, president of the Talbot County Women’s Club.
The Talbot County Women’s Club was founded in 1930.
Club activities over the years included visiting patients and supporting their needs at the Eastern Shore Hospital Center in Cambridge; providing non-perishable food items to the Neighborhood Center,Talbot Senior Center, and Department of Aging; providing backpacks for Easton Middle School students; knitting and crocheting hats for the Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign for the American Heart Association; and sponsoring scholarships to women returning to Chesapeake College for their degrees.
“Our Club offers an excellent opportunity
for new residents to meet other women, as well as get to know the community,” Lutes said.
The club is always seeking new members. For more information please visit talbotcountywomensclub.org.
