The Pelican Point-Greens Garden Club monthly meeting was led by Weezie Cashat. Sherill Stevenson led members in reading the club prayer. Gonzales Garden Club members Janis Poche and Conchita Richey talked about flower arrangements. They discussed the preparation of fresh plant materials, supplies and design techniques. The visitors created two arrangements during the presentation. “Although there are definite design rules, don’t be afraid to experiment with your arrangements,” Poche said. “If your final product makes you happy, that’s what really matters.” Hostesses were Kathy Buchtel, Gabriella Hunter and Gayle Smith.
