Welcome to the Sea Trail Garden Club

 

“Bloom where you are planted” is much more than the motto of the Sea Trail Garden Club – it is truly the essence of its very existence. The Garden Club is not really a gardening club, as we know it, it is a welcoming bridge to life at Sea Trail for newcomers, for visiting guests and for long-term members. With monthly meeting featuring a variety of programs, special projects that can last for several days, weeks or months, it affords an arena in which involvement is as little or great as the members wish. Special areas worthy of note include the annual “Make-it, Bake-it, Sew-it, Grow-It” Christmas Auction whose proceeds benefit Brunswick County charities, as well as Garden Club On-the-Go which schedules small group day trips to area points of interest. Garden Club is open to any woman in Sea Trail and has annual dues of $30.00. Any one interested in joining contact Pam Fisher at 910-579-7685 or pamsfisher@atmc.net.

 

SEA TRAIL GARDEN CLUB – FASHION SHOW AND CHARITY AUCTION
MARCH 13, 2018 – SEA TRAIL CONVENTION CENTER

Garden Club on the Go – Three to four times a year excursions are planned for Garden Club members to travel to an interesting venue away from their usual meeting place, the Pink Palace. Sometimes the ladies remain “on campus” and tour homes and/ or gardens at Sea Trail. Other times, they carpool or charter a bus for a day trip or even over night. Almost always a meal is involved!!! Recent trips have included a shopping excursion to Charlotte, a winery tour at Shelton Vineyards in the Yadkin Valley of North Carolina, a Tour of the Theatre of the Republic, a Christmas Home Tour, a Food and Wine Tasting Tour in Wilmington and numerous plays and theatre experiences. In the past we have also gone to Charleston, Airlie Gardens, Bald Head Island, Brookgreen Gardens and more.

Announcement of upcoming trips will be made at monthly Garden Club meetings, via email blasts, and on the website. In most cases, your check will constitute your reservation. Since the number of participants varies for each trip, and often that number is limited, it is wise to sign up as early as possible for each trip.

For more information, please contact committee co-chairs, Sue Cole (suecole@atmc.net) or Darlene DeCrane (ddecrane@atmc.net).
