Sponsored by the club’s Intergenerational Committee , co-chaired by Bev Reitinger and Lois Perry, kids and their special guests join forces four times a year at the Beach Haven School to create beautiful flower arrangements and learn from each other.
Friday, May 3, 2019 was a flower power day for children in 3rd to 6th grades at Beach Haven School. Approximately 30 children and their special invited friend joined Garden Club members in making a lovely floral arrangement. The children were very exited to take part in this annual activity, usually coordinated with Mother’s Day. (We meet with grades PK-2 in November.) The children make beautiful arrangements and are proud to present them to their family. The Garden Club and the Beach Haven School appreciate this fine community partnership. Thank you volunteers who made the activity very successful. Click on photos to enlarge.
