District II Semi-Annual Meeting

About a dozen Crofton Village Garden Club members attended the District II Semi-Annual Meeting at the Bowie Comfort Inn, earlier this month.

We were extremely proud of our president, Sunny Frank, who won the “birds and butterflies” photography contest with this photo of an African Gray-Crowned Crane.   She had several entries, and they all were fabulous!

The lunch was wonderful, as it always is at this facility, and the flower arranging demonstration by Doug Vogel was very informative, entertaining and inspiring.  After the presentation, all of the arrangements created or displayed during the program were auctioned off – and Crofton Village Garden Club members took several of them home.

Numerous vendors were available in the corridor, and these wonderful birdhouses made from gourds caught my eye.  I couldn’t resist!  Now… should I keep it or give as a Christmas present…. Hmmmmm…


If you’re a garden club member and have never attended one of these meetings, try to make the annual meeting in Spring.  I think you might enjoy it!
