Wellington Garden Club To Meet Oct. 5

The Wellington Garden Club will meet Monday, Oct. 5 at Village Park, located at 11700 Pierson Road. A business meeting will start at 10:30 a.m., followed by lunch at 11:30 a.m., and a program on “Understanding and Enjoying a Flower Show” at 12:15 p.m., presented by Mary Ellen Chestnut.

Chestnut, a 15-year member of the Wellington Garden Club and a master flower show judge, has been affiliated with several South Florida garden clubs. She was the first accredited judge to join the Wellington Garden Club and co-chaired the club’s first standard flower show. In addition, Chestnut served as past director of District XII flower show judges. She will discuss the “law of the show,” the impact of the physical location of the show, how the choice of container can affect the appearance of the composition, the use and balance of color, and skillful interpretation of the flower show theme.

Guests are welcome, but seating is limited. To RSVP, contact Jim Wenham at hammerx48@me.com. For more info., visit www.wellingtongardenclub.org.
