Eliot Garden Club
I am the current 1st Vice President of the Eliot Garden Club, and will
become President in June! Club activities include maintaining community
planters, fund-raising events such as the annual plant sale, garden therapy
for seniors and Junior Gardening for children. During 2004, the club
raised $28,000 to have a lovely gazebo built in Eliot on Hammond Park.
The Eliot Garden Club is open to all area residents that have a desire
to share their love of gardening. Meetings are held on the second Thursday
of each month at the Eliot Congregational Church, McPherson Hall on State
Rd. Eliot, Maine. The meetings begin at 12:45 p.m. with refreshments
and a time for all members to socialize. A gardening related program
or workshop follows a brief business meeting. The club also has a number
of wonderful field trips each year.
"Swing for CF" Charity Golf Classic
I was proud to be a member of the dynamic committee for this fundraiser.
In just five years, this golf tournament raised over $250,000 for the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Please consider CFF when making your charitable
contributions! Over 90 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to
research and treatment. For more information, visit www.cff.org.
Portsmouth Music Hall Annual Fundraiser: The Event
I’m new to this great annual event and had a wonderful time helping
to organize and install the decorations for the "Seacoast’s
Hottest Dance Party". This year’s theme was “Bollywood” and
my goal was to completely transform the Music Hall... it’s amazing
what 500 yards of fabric and 1000 paper flowers can do!
