GERMANTOWN — The Germantown Garden Club will be holding its annual Holiday Open House 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 7 and 1-3 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Palatine Parsonage, 52 Maple Ave., Germantown.
The show will feature ‘Winter Container Plants.’ Houseplants from members will be on display along with information about how to grow and take care of them and will offer viewers great ideas about what plants would be suitable to give as presents for the holidays. Some of them will be offered for sale.
There will also be a bake sale of delicious home-made treats.
Hand-decorated, one-of-a-kind, fresh wreaths and table arrangements made by garden club members will be for sale.
Come early. The wreaths are a best seller for the club and sell out quickly.
There will also be a Boutique Sale with items to purchase.
Also offered will be raffles of specialty baskets. Funds raised from this event benefit the club’s local high school scholarship fund and other community donations and projects.
Other holiday events that the club will be doing include the Annual Holiday Luncheon to be held at noon Dec. 10 at the Palatine Parsonage. At this meeting, the installation of club officers will take place.
Members are asked to bring a gift for one of the residents at the Livingston Hills Nursing Center.
Before the meeting, the annual Adorn-A-Door contest will take place. Each year, the club sponsors this holiday decorating competition for the senior residents at Palatine Manor in Germantown.
Members will be judging this event where prizes will be awarded.
The seniors are very enthusiastic about this and do a fabulous job decorating the doors to their apartments.
