March New Horizons Flower Making Project

Once again members gathered at the Amherst Library, under the tutelage of Joan Poltack, Dawn Burke and Diane Merrithew for a crafting session benefitting New Horizons Soup Kitchen décor. For those who may be new to the club, the need for crafting the flowers was a result of the loss of supply of plant materials from a local wholesaler. The wholesaler changed the way unsalable surplus is handled which reduced their costs but left the club scrambling for a source. Thanks to the creativity of our members and budgetary support from the club, we are able to continue spreading cheer in the dining area of New Horizons.  Most importantly, making the flowers is a pleasant way to spend a chilly morning with friends. All are welcome. Photos by Joan Poltack.
