White Elephants Have New Homes!

Many White Elephants are enjoying new homes after a very successful White Elephant Auction!

Members and guests participated in both silent and live auctions of more than 100 donated items.  Over $800 was raised to help fund the gardens and run the club.  Becky Greene served as auctioneer and led the spirited bidding during the live auction.

This month’s hostesses focused on a St. Patrick’s Day theme and featured green treats.

During the business portion of the meeting, members were reminded to pay their dues for the upcoming year.  If you missed the meeting, your $20 dues may be sent to Donna Aycock, 125 Durham St., Holden Beach, 28462.

Preparation for the Spring Plant sale is in full swing and members are reminded to get sponsorships turned in ASAP.

Officers for 2015-2016 were elected and will be installed at the May Social.  The slate includes:

President – Gayle Todd
First Vice President – Donna Aycock
Second Vice President – Carolyn Metrakos
Third Vice President – Lillian West
Secretary – Sharon Butler
Treasurer – Gina Martin

Next month’s meeting is the field trip to Airlie Gardens.  RSVP to Carol Ann, 910-842-1576.
