Donate Champagne Bottles to the Flower Show Committee!!!!
For next spring’s Flower Show (5/18-19-20), the club needs Champagne bottles. A May show means we are likely to have many more flowering branches from trees and large shrubs entered than in our recent, more summery shows. The weight of these entries can sometimes overpower a wine bottle. Champagne bottles are heavier, and are intentionally far weightier at the bottom, and therefore are far less likely to be toppled by a weighty branch. It would be best to have 50-75 matching ones: is anyone hosting a big wedding? If so, please call me. Or does anyone have a connection at a club hosting a major New Year’s Eve Party? If you do, please call me. Assuming not, please save your own holiday champagne bottles, clean them and remove the labels, and pass them on to me! Now that we have a storage unit for SLGC equipment (THANK YOU, LINDA PAINE!), we can keep a horde of heavy bottles for future shows. Your help is very much appreciated!
