Floral Design (Flower Arranging) primarily is interested in the promotion of the art of floral design, particularly for competition in the Flower Show. The meetings focus on instructions, demonstrations, and workshops by various program presenters, with the ultimate goal of participation in the Flower Show, as well as personal enjoyment. Check the yearbook for dates of the months from Oct. through May. Floral Design members support and are expected to participate fully in Garden Club activities, and are responsible for maintenance of the Native Plant Garden on the grounds of the Garden Club. As a community service project, the group donates Christmas gifts to a local young women's facility, as well as donating to World Gardening and Junior Gardening programs. Several members also exhibit floral designs at the Museum of Fine Arts as part of "Art in Bloom", which has been a successful annual fund-raising event for the Museum of Fine Arts. We welcome new members with an interest in floral design.
