Holiday Island Garden Club grew beautiful tulips in our Community Garden box. They were harvested this week and delivered to Peachtree Village residents, just in time to add color and joy to the Easter Season.
On Wednesday, November 20, 2019, we held our annual Christmas Party which included a potluck, wreath workshop, gift wrapping and assembly of our preschool ABC Bags donations. Candis Drechsler and B.J. Dennis did a beautiful job decorating and organizing the potluck.
A special thanks goes to Cathie Drake for organizing the collection of donations.
Monica Kidwell taught us the basics of wreath and bow making.
In spite of the freezing temperatures, a few brave souls from the Holiday Garden Club took the Loon Pontoon Cruise at Hobbs State Park.
The scenery was beautiful, but not one loon was spotted!
