CAMP AGAPE CONTRIBUTIONS in 2014
Led by club member Nancy Hastings club members contribute gift in support of an annual holiday party for the children of Camp Agape. These children have one or more parents incarcerated. At the party the children "shopped" from the donationa enabling them to have gifts for family members. Here are some pictures of the donations waiting to be taken to the party.
Every year the DGC Program committee puts together monthly activities designed for your enjoyment, entertainment and education with an emphasis on diverse activities (e.g., bus trips, hands-on workshops, great speakers), collaboration and community building. We want to engage new faces, build our membership and increase our partnerships with community groups such as the other garden clubs in District 1 and local non-profits, this with a view towards enhancing everyone’s experience in the Dorchester Garden Club. We encourage your input and ideas and guests are welcome at all our programs.
If you are not sure yet that you want to become a member, consider joining the fun as a "Friend of DGC" for $20/year....and you can start volunteering and participating in activities, including our monthly events/programs/meetings and get to know us.
(But, unlike paying members, you will have to pay $25 for lunch at each event).
Remember: you need to have a DGC SPONSOR to become a member. So being a friend first will allow you to meet many potential sponsors.
