Our Annual Meeting Completes our Year

We held our annual luncheon and installation of officers and new members at the Atrium this past week. Our members are pictured here, and we thank them for their loyal service to our club.

We will resume meetings and activities in September. Stay tuned for more information, or visit us on Instagram or Facebook.

Have a great summer!

Our April Flower Show was a Huge Success!

February Brings Us Back Together

Thanks to the efforts of our Melanie S. and Joanne M., both of whom worked diligently before and during the event, our return to the Atrium at Navesink was a success. You can see from our Instagram pics that everyone had fun with the exact same material, garnered from as far away as Africa.

The prizes that were awarded were whimsical and we all had a good laugh while admiring each others’ results.

Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We are looking forward to being together in March. Come back here to keep posted on our events and photographs.

January Meeting Cancelled – Read on…

The Meeting planned for January 11, has been postponed until February 8, in place of our original plans. We hope to see you on soon as we continue to monoitor our CoVid situation. Join our list for updated plans as things can change rapidly.

Hopefully, things will calm down in a few months while we wait for increased vaccinations, and less illness.

Next Meeting Update

Welcome members to our annual Holiday Decoration session!

October Meeting and Small Design

Our latest meeting was immersed in the art of small design. Our speaker, Debbie Moran, had us enthralled with her creativity and successful stories of design’s trials and tribulations. After enjoying this talk, many of us were inspired to explore small design as an option in an upcoming show.

The meeting was only one of many interesting and worthwhile activities of this Club.

Catching Up – not CoVid!

The Club met over Zoom on our regular dates of March and April. The weather was sort of cold; we did not want to be outside just yet.

In March, We had more information on Marina K.’s project as Program Chair for us – Art in Bloom. She focused on choosing pictures and then demonstrating her own creations in 3D based on the artist’s work. This is a project that any Club can do, and it is a lot of fun. It also helps us and teaches us how to interpret what an artist does in terms of form, composition, color.

Here are some examples –

In April, Marina held the program “Art in Bloom” and asked those members who prepared entries to share them.

May was held outdoors at a member’s home, and Marina showed us in person(!) how to determine and groom your entries for a standard flower show. She also showed us how to fill out an entry card. There were many tips given, from “the horse’s mouth” as Marina is an experienced judge. We have a great resource in Marina.

Here’s wishing her luck as our incoming President in June. Her unwavering loyalty and leadership will be much appreciated and much different than the past year as we dig out of quarantines and restrictions and having little contact except on Zoom.
