The next Ventura County Garden Club regular meeting will be on Wednesday, May 1st (2019) at St. Paul’s Episcopal & Emmanuel Church, 117 N. 7th Street, in Santa Paula. This is “A Victorian May Day” and will begin at 1:00 p.m. with a “Vintage Spring Fashion Show”, presented by Garden Club member, Carol Beckerdite; an avid vintage fashion collector. She has created many fashion shows and teas. Models from Ventura and Santa Paula will be wearing original and reproduction vintage clothing and hats; with an emphasis on Victorian style. The show will be followed by light refreshments and regular club business.
After announcements, members and guests will hear about the Victorian custom of making a May Day Basket. Then they will have an optional opportunity to make their own, with fresh cut flowers. Carol will bring supplies for those who telephone her, (805)525-1935, by April 29th. She will collect a $10 materials fee (cash-only), from those who will be making a basket.
Members and guests are encouraged to wear a spring outfit and hat. Carol will bring a few extra hats that she makes ($30-$35 to purchase). Guests are always welcome to join in Club events. For further information about the meeting, contact Jacqualin at (805) 816-6019 or [email protected]
