Save the date for July 16 floral arranging demonstration

Leona Hess

The Sun Lakes Garden Club members will enjoy a floral arranging demonstration by Leona Hess at the Tuesday, July 16 meeting. Leona has been in the floral industry for 16 years as well as her career as a kitchen and bath designer. She will demonstrate the basics of floral design, proper vases, color and proportion and answer questions. The floral arrangements will then be donated to the club raffle!

On June 25, a group of 26 members enjoyed a field trip to the Southwest Gardener Shop for a private tour, with 15% discount on garden art by local artists, a gourmet lunch next door at the Southern Rails restaurant and an afternoon class creating garden art together.
