Club Notes — May 25
Encanto Garden Club
Encanto Garden Club’s meeting in April consisted of members putting together more than 45 coffee mugs with an original silk flower arrangement in each, which were then given to Clovis Rehab Center and Retirement Ranch for patients at Easter.
Prior to the March meeting members had voted a $25 donation to C.A.R.E.S. This is an organization of employees who may use these gift donations to benefit the zoo as they see fit.
The March Encanto meeting was held March 14. Secretary, Helen Martinez designed and printed the club’s new year books which were handed out. The book this year is dedicated to all past members, women who were committed and dedicated to our mission statement: “Encourage gardening, continue horticulture education and enjoy the beauty of flower arranging.”
