Jensen Beach Garden Club General
February 28 Fundraiser
Blingo at the Elks!
Beach Garden Club Blingo will be held Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at the
Stuart-Jensen Elks Lodge, 1001 S. Kanner Hwy, Stuart, FL. Doors will open at 10:00a.m.
for purchasing raffle tickets and raffle entries. The program will be from
11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.. The cost is $30 which includes lunch and six games
of bingo with cash prizes.
The “Blingo” is a Breakfast at Tiffany's décor theme. If you
recall Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, she wore a black dress,
sunglasses, tiara, and pearls. It would fun to have the ladies dress in some of
this attire and “Bling” from the Audrey Hepburn era! We will have tiaras,
sunglasses and pearl beads available as party favors for you to wear. There will
be a photo booth for pictures, Cait, from Glittering Gypsies, will also be
there if you would like to get some fairy lights in your hair. We will also have
a “Tiffany’s Cosmopolitan” specialty drink available at the bar.
The last day
to purchase tickets will be at the next regular garden club meeting on
Wednesday, February 21st. Anyone can attend, friends, family and
spouses. If you would like to purchase tickets please contact Linda
Biagiono 772/232-9003 or Linda Elliott . We hope you will support this event as
a garden club member. It is an important event to help raise funds that
will benefit the Garden Club, the Elks Lodge and various charities.

Welcome Back Members
As promised the first meeting was a great success. We
welcomed old friends and new.
Our new Co-President, Diane Burr presided over the majority of the meeting.
Penney Pines Awards were given to Audrey Kiel and Dottie Spahr for
their years of service to the club. Since Dottie is leaving us and moving away,
she received her certificate at our last summer luncheon. She will be surely
missed by the club. The trips were announced and reservations were taken. Linda
B. and Johanna sold tickets for the Holiday Party and the Enjoyment book.
Contact Grace Sherry if you want a book. A list with suggestions of "Best
Sellers" for our annual fundraiser
April Plant Sale. FFGC President Claudia Bates special project is
Flowering Trees. The JBGC will plant one at Indian Riverside Park with a plaque
inscribed with the JBGC name.
We had a busy meeting which included a demonstration by
Co-President Gail Rounds, 2nd VP Laurie Hoot-Capon and Programs Chair Wendy
Caswell. The club was shown the correct way to propagate plants from ones you or
someone you know have in the landscape. Pots, planting medium and plants of all
varieties were supplied by the club. We got our hands dirty but left the meeting
proudly carrying our new offsprings which we will lovingly tend until they are
big enough to be sold at our April plant sale.
Well we are almost off to a new season! The programs are in place, the tours
have been arranged and this promises to be the best season yet. We have a new
board and committee members who have spent the last 6 months preparing for it
and listening to your suggestions. The JBGC is proud to be known as a friendly
and fun club. We are also proud to be one of the most philanthropic
organizations of our size.
This is your club and we only exist because of you. The garden club has a wide
and varied membership. We value each member for whatever they bring to our club
because we found the one common characteristic we all share, is a love for our
environment and desire to protect it for future generations.
sure to check out the Meeting Schedule, Garden Tours, and your Presidents'
Message pages. We hope that you enjoy your 2017-2018 Season.!
