Orchid Party


A sizeable group of ladies (not just from RGC) gathered at Ellyn Meikle’s gardens to learn about orchid arranging and how to care for them. In addition to the wonderful camaraderie, everyone received handouts on the dos and don’ts of Phaleanopsis orchids. There was an array of beautiful orchids of various size and color to choose from. Containers, moss, and bark were supplied to complete their creations. It was a lovely day and a lovely way to ring in the leap year!

District Hosts Winter Meeting


CGCI just celebrated a “first” - a Winter Board Meeting on the Queen Mary In Long Beach. Great views and a grand way to meet and conduct business. Chairman Alexis Slafer and the Costa Verde District created a FUN time and managed to educate all by including an NGC Tri-Refresher for Consultants. Linda Rosenfeld for coordinated RGC participation in this event. Marilyn Rubin and Mary Varieur supplied the beautiful centerpieces.

Mary and Joseph Special Event


A very well attended meeting was held at the Mary and Joseph Retreat Center in February. A great thanks to Bill Arrowsmith from the Friends of the Madrona Marsh, for sharing the history and importance of the local wetlands. Followed by a lovely luncheon. Thank you to Linda Rosenfeld and Gloria Balcon for coordinating this event and Pat Heilmann for the beautiful centerpieces.
