Have your scissors and ribbons ready and follow along to make the bows of your choice at our April meeting. Members will watch two videos of bows made using just your very own fingers, then watch live demonstrations by Sandy Robertson, Gail Schulz, and JoAnn Cook while they display several other bow-making techniques.
The bow-making team is excited to share their skills with you. It will be a fun program!

The Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland Annual Meeting was held yesterday at Turf Valley Resort and Hotel in Ellicott City. New board members were installed by NGC President-elect Mary Warshauer.
Two of the floral tributes are pictured above. The arrangement on the left with Anthuriums was done by Sylvia Deck (Crofton Greenery and Moonflower Garden Clubs) and the one with Calla Lilies on the right was done by Dessie Moxley (Howard County Garden Club).
FEATURED NATIVE TREE: Magnolia virginiana, sweetbay magnolia
A semi-evergreen with glistening oval dark green leaves and a frosted-appearing underside. The large, creamy white flowers have a light lemon scent and are visible in late spring and early summer. Red fruit are held in a showy conelike structure. Introduced into European gardens as early as 1688 and called "Beaver tree" by colonists who caught beavers in traps baited with the fleshy roots.
