Spring is in the air!
For most of us it felt like winter would never end. Trivia Night was a wonderful break from the long winter blues. There were a lot of new faces there which is always a wonderful thing to see. For those of you that have never attended the event you are missing a good time. The trivia host said more than once that we are his rowdiest group! Trivia night would not be possible without our wonderful committee of organizers. So a big shout out to Tricia Hutton, Hillary Andrlik, Becky Stanton, Mary Kate Watkins, Amanda Solomon, Chrisma Ibarola and Christin Kacedan. The ladies that organized the event do such a wonderful job at gathering raffle items (which is no small task), organizing the small prizes for winning at trivia and helping out with ticket sales on trivia night. That being said, some of these ladies are looking to move on to bigger and better things within SGC, so this event will need some new members to keep it going. Trivia Night is our largest fundraiser, which provides high school scholarships and 8th grade graduation boat trips.
It would be a huge loss to the SGC and would greatly inhibit our philanthropic goals. I know that the ladies have a process in place to make the event successful, so if you would be interested in helping out next year please send an email to Saybrookgardenclub@gmail.com or signup during the Salad Supper.
With spring comes the highly anticipated Progressive Dinner. This year’s Progressive has a funky theme with a focus on food, so make sure you have your annual dues paid up so that you receive your invitation. You can check your SGC status on our website under Membership.
As any successful organization, we rely solely on volunteers and many hands make light work. None of the committees are difficult and after years of practice there are easy steps in place to make each event successful. Also the planning is sometimes more fun than the event itself, and is a great way to meet new people in the neighborhood. Once summer approaches keep an eye out for more information on the Adult Float and the Salad Supper, which are both in August!
