Monday, December 6 – Thursday, December 9 – Garden Club of the Back Bay Wreath Making Days

Here is the call for volunteers for The Garden Club of the Back Bay’s Annual Wreath Making Project. A version of the notice below was mailed to our members, but we’re happy to welcome all volunteers who may wish to help out with a fun, social, neighborhood fund raising event.  If you’re new and would like to decorate, you’ll be paired at first with one of our experienced decorators, as an assistant.  There are many other non-decorating tasks, however, so feel free to stop by!

Pastor Ingo R. Dutzmann and his parish will again host our Club for wreath making on the lower level of The First Lutheran Church of Boston, 299 Berkeley Street (on the corner of Berkeley and Marlborough Streets). We are very, very grateful. The hours are as follows:

Monday, December 6 – 8:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. (set up, training, + decoration)
Tuesday, December 7 – 8:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. (decorating)
Wednesday, December 8- 8:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. (decorating, delivery)
Thursday, December 9- 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. (decorating, delivery, clean up)

Please come to the side door on Berkeley Street. We’ll post a sign.  Dried materials and fresh greens can be delivered to the Church no earlier than Monday, December 6. Please have all decorations “cleaned down” – branches cut down, dead leaves removed – so we can contain the mess we inevitably make. Delicate materials can be laid flat in sweater boxes or gently stacked in cardboard containers. We are going to need as many dried items, especially flowers, as we can collect.

Bring clippers and scissors if you have them, labeled with masking tape for ease of identification. Aprons are also a good idea. Dress comfortably! We need everyone’s help, whether you decorate, deliver, organize, make telephone calls confirming delivery, or sweep. Contact if you have questions or can take a delivery shift. Otherwise, we’ll see you on December 6. Please try to come for as many hours as possible, on as many days as you can spare – we need you, and you’ll have a great time. Thank you.
