The Kiawah Island Garden Club is off and running with new President Brenda Larsen and Vice President Deborah Rowland. Cheryl Boswell will continue as treasurer.
At the October meeting, members discussed the plans and programs for the year and new ideas were plentiful. On Nov. 20, members will meet at the Sandcastle at 10 a.m. to create their own Thanksgiving floral arrangements in pumpkins. Louise Limehouse of Rosebank Farms will provide the prepared pumpkins and a large selection of flowers and dried objects to choose from. Experienced Garden Club members will be happy to guide those who have never tried this. The cost is $40, and reservations are required. Details are available at kiawahislandgardenclub.org.
Once new members have signed up and paid their dues of $15 – sent to Cheryl Boswell at 23 LeMoyne Lane, Kiawah Island, South Carolina 29455 – they will receive monthly emails with all details of upcoming events. Checks for the pumpkin workshop should also be sent to Cheryl by Nov. 4.
Right after Thanksgiving, Garden Club members will make fresh green arrangements to decorate the island of Kiawah. Late in November or early December, members will gather to make holiday arrangements for their own mailboxes. On Dec. 9, there will be an outing to tour the Manigault House in Charleston, which will be decorated with floral arrangements made by the Garden Club of Charleston. Lunch will follow.
2020 will be filled with informative meetings and fun outings, so all Kiawah Islanders are encouraged to join the Garden Club and be part of the fun.
