Avalon Garden Club 2020 events!
Once again, at the 39th Street Club Greenhouse, Members attended a hands-on workshop led by Joan Matthews, VP, on how to make and maintain a traditional boxwood tree for the holidays. Using fresh boxwood greens, armed with garden shears, they cut and assembled, creating their holiday tree to personally decorate themselves at a later time. Wearing masks and maintaining social distancing didn’t keep Club Members from getting involved in this project, and having some fun. To allow for maximum participants, the workshop was held over 2 days, Nov 17 & 18.
Chaired by Club Member Cheryl Mattson, the Club held a successful Yard Sale October 10 & 17 to raise funds. It was the 1st fundraiser the Club was able to do concerning Covid restrictions. It was held at the 39th St “Greenhouse” following Covid strict rules. Funds raised help defray the costs associated with the beautification of Avalon Islands, Parks & Gardens.

Wearing their masks and maintaining social distance did not keep Club Members from getting involved in this wonderful project, bringing joy to the residents of Crest Haven Nursing & Rehab.
