This is a printable copy of our Centerport Garden Club Hospitality To-Do List.
It is quite an undertaking for our volunteers to provide lunch & clean-up for our monthly meetings with 75-85 members and guests. It is important for every volunteer to understand the process so that we can all work closely as a team.
We thank you for your support!

Members of the CGC took part in a club sponsored workshop which included many of the foods and products made by thier own members. A very talented group of people indeed!
The day before the Floral Exhibition is judged the horticulture specimens and floral designs are brought in for placement. Our horticulture teams helps with plant id and with the correct paperwork required for submission. The designers bring in and place their work and some decide to complete their installation in situ. Hospitality gathers and prices all the homemade goodies for sale while creating the platters for light refreshments offered to our visitors. Our talented artists and artisans deliver their work for display and sale. This is a 12 hour day for many of our members.
In December the Centerport Garden Club creates wreaths for distribution throughout the Centerport area.
