Letter from the President of the Garden Club
Dear Garden Club at Palm Coast Members;
Well by now you know that our nation is facing a health and financial crisis. It saddens me to say the 2019-2020 Garden Club season year has ended.
With the corona-virus out there, we don’t want any one of our members to catch it. April and May Board meetings, the April General meeting and the 45th Anniversary luncheon in May are all cancelled.
If you paid for the Anniversary luncheon a refund will be sent out soon. The “Treasures in the Attic”, “Spring Festival” and “Arbor Day” ceremonies are cancelled.
In addition, the 2020 FFGC Convention in Tampa is cancelled. As events get rescheduled, we will let you know.
Please be well, take good care of yourselves and be good to each other. I have enjoyed being your president for the past two years. Give Carol any help she may need, and may God Bless each one of you.
Sue Bara, President
Letter from the Garden Club at Palm Coast to the Spring Festival sponsors, vendors and donations givers
Thank you for supporting The Garden Club at Palm Coast Spring Festival on April 18, 2020. We are sorry to inform you, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, Flagler County has suspended all festivals and large events. As a result our Spring Festival has been cancelled.
Your sponsorship, being a vendor and your donations to our Spring Festival Fund Raiser help provide funds to award scholarships to Flagler County graduating seniors pursuing careers in science and environmental programs. In addition, the funds also assist in awarding scholarships to elementary students to attend the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs Wekiva summer camp and programs at Whispering Meadows Ranch in Flagler Beach. We are also actively involved with the students in the environmental class at Old Kings Elementary School and donate plants for their garden beds. These projects and more would not be possible without your sponsorship.
We will organize another Spring Festival in the spring of 2021.
Please let us know:
- If you would like to donate your vendor deposit or your sponsorship to our scholarships now, or
- You would like to hold your space for Spring Festival 2021, in which case we will hold your funds and space, or
- You would like a refund.
We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.
We look forward to you being part of our Spring Festival in 2021.
