Thanks to all of you who donated your treasures for the jewelry sale the club held at the District II Semi-Annual Meeting at the Comfort Inn on Friday, October 12. Three tables adorned with earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings were the highlight of the meeting.
Thanks to member Shirley Levendoski who collected, sorted, cleaned and stored the jewelry. And thanks to her team who displayed and marketed the items.
Jewelry is still being collected, so contact Shirley to let her know that you have items. The next sale will be at the Holiday Luncheon in December. The sales of the jewelry will be Cash and Carry.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used for the CVGC 50th Anniversary celebration that will take place in April 2019.
CVGC had wonderful weather for the garden tour. The tour included private gardens located throughout the Crofton community with refreshments served at Historic Linthicum Walks.
Thank you to all of the homeowners who opened their gardens to us, making this event possible and to the sponsors and advertisers who supported this fundraising project. Funds received will support many club projects to protect and improve the Crofton community environment.
Scroll over the photo and use the play button or arrow buttons located at the top of the picture to view photos of the gardens.
