New & Noteworthy


AGC Christmas spirit will be in full swing on Wednesday, December 5th. Gregory Britton will be on hand to demonstrate how to create holiday arrangements for the home and help us with our arrangements for Mountainside. We will be selling raffle tickets and the 3 winners will take home one of Gregory's incredible creations! We will also have some AGC notecards and gift tags and some other surprise items for sale. So, remember to bring your clippers, mad money and good cheer!

Cutting greens at Morven for our Christmas workshop was great fun! We even got to take some home for ourselves. Thanks to all that came and helped and a huge shout out to our fearless leaders Cathy Lively and Megan Eckenberger. Being intrepid gardeners, we noticed that the rose garden was still filled with blooms. Andy told us to cut away as they were going to cut them down this week. What joy!
