The Talbot County Women’s Club is hosting the “Garden Gate Fundraiser Flower Mart & Craft Fair” on April 22 through April 24 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at the Talbot County Women’s Club located at 18 Talbot Lane in Easton (behind the Waterfowl Building).
The Flower Mart will offer wide selections of geraniums, annuals, perennials, and herbs, as well as hanging baskets and garden planters for both sun and shade. The Craft Fair will offer a nice selection of outdoor living and garden décor items from pots and planters to bird feeders and birdhouses, as well as locally-made jewelry and other unique items.
“Our Flower Mart and Fair is just in time for Mother’s Day gift-giving and spring planting and offers the opportunity to shop safely outside. The goal of this year’s event is to raise funds to be able to support our numerous service projects as well as support the restoration efforts for the historic house where the Club meets,” comments Nancy Lutes, President of the Talbot County Women’s Club.
The Talbot County Women’s Club, a registered non-profit, was founded in 1930 by a small group of women with the desire to serve the community while also building lifelong friendships. Four key principles have guided the work of the Club over the 90 years it has been operating and include supporting service projects, building deep friendships, creating lifelong learning experiences, and maintaining a center for the Club’s activities.
Club activities over the years included visiting patients and supporting their needs at the Eastern Shore Hospital Center in Cambridge; providing non-perishable food items to the Neighborhood Center, Talbot Senior Center, and Department of Aging; providing backpacks for Easton Middle School students; knitting and crocheting hats for the Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign for the American Heart Association; and sponsoring scholarships to women returning to Chesapeake College for their degrees.
“Our Club offers an excellent opportunity for new residents to meet other women, as well as get to know the community,” Lutes adds.
The club is always seeking new members. For more information please visit talbotcountywomensclub.org or call Nancy Lutes, President, 410-310-8919.
