We are sad to once again cancel our Garden Club meeting for October but have been advised by experts from the Vashon Medical Reserve Corps that due to the continuing rise in cases of Covid 19's Delta Variant on Vashon, it would not be a good idea to hold a meeting of 70 plus people. We continue to be hopeful to gather in person for future meetings. Check back on the website soon for this month's club experts' talks and special guest presentations online.
Welcome to the 69th Year of the Vashon-Maury Island Garden Club!
The Garden Club Board of Directors is hopeful that we will be able to begin our Garden Club monthly meetings in December. We are moving our meetings to a new, much larger location, at the multi-purpose building (gym) at Bethel Church and are requiring everyone, except the speaker, to wear a mask at all times while inside the building. This new location is much larger than the space we used at the Lutheran Church, so we will be able to socially distance around tables or while walking around tables during the meeting.
Our new meeting location is at the Bethel Church, multi-purpose building (gym)
14736 Bethel Lane SW, Vashon WA 98070
New Member Orientation Info
Immediately following our first in-person meeting, we will hold a new member orientation meeting for all new members, the Board of Directors and all Committee Chairs. If you are a new member, please plan on staying after our regular meeting to learn more about our club, meet Committee Chairs and see if you can find a match to help out with our Club in ways that sound like fun to you.
Our Garden Club is a group of volunteers and we rely on everyone helping out the club in some way so we can make the club more rewarding for everyone.
