DGC is having a Tea Party to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Plan to share your favorite Valentine’s Day story. Members are encouraged to bring a floral design in a teacup. Half of the tables will have DGC members stand by their design and tell their story, then switch and the ‘lookers’ become the storytellers, so all get a chance to share. More info will be shared at our DGC meetings!
