Luncheons

December 7, 2023 Christmas Luncheon

Many thanks to Beth Fluke for managing the Guild's 2023 Christmas Luncheon!  Beth made the beautiful table arrangements. Thanks to Bonnie Newman for her gifts to each of us of Baking Soda; members read from a book on the many uses of baking soda.  What fun!  D'Shanti Restaurant in West Ajijic  was the location of a delicious meal consisting of two courses and dessert.  We visited prior to eating and it was wonderful to catch up with one another. So good to see Margaret Quinn after her back surgery!
All in all, a wonderful ending to a year of Garden Guild activities!

DECEMBER 7, 2022 CHRISTMAS LUNCHEON

MANY KUDOS TO BETH FLUKE AND HER COMMITTEE ON PUTTING TOGETHER THE 2022 CHRISTMAS LUNCHEON.  IT WAS THE END OF A DIFFERENT KIND OF YEAR (OR 2!) FOR THE GUILD, CAUTIOUSLY RESUMING MEETINGS, BUT 2022 WRAPPED UP IN TRUE GARDEN GUILD SPIRIT.  D'SHANTI RESTAURANT IN WEST AJIJIC WAS THE LOCATION FOR A DELICIOUS MEAL OF 2 COURSES AND DESSERT.  THE FELLOWSHIP BEFORE THE MEAL WAS SO ENGAGING THAT THE RESTAURANT HAD TO REMIND US TO BE SEATED TO START THE MEAL SERVICE!
BETH CREATED A FRAGRANT ROSE AND LILY CENTERPIECE FOR EACH TABLE, AND THEN EACH ATTENDEE FOUND A SPECIAL GIFT AT THEIR PLACE SETTING - A PAIR OF EARRINGS BROUGHT BACK FROM HER TRIP TO THAILAND!

2019 Christmas Luncheon

The annual Christmas luncheon was held at the beautiful home of Bonnie Newman on Tuesday, December 3.  Bonnie outdid herself this year with the festive decorations in every room; it really put everyone in the holiday spirit.  Catering was by Me & Julio, and the food was just as delicious as at the Floral Show.  Joyce McNiven thanked Karen Lingo for leading the planning of the Christmas Party and Celina Haramis who helped Karen.  Justine Bertram, Leigh Manheim and Cathy Sheehan assisted in setup. Merry Christmas to All!
