Holiday Floral Arrangements

At the Huntington Branch Library on Wednesday, 12/10 at 10:30AM.  Enjoy the talents of floral designer Cathy Ritch as she demonstrates the joy of decorating with holiday flowers.  The Friends of the Shelton Libraries (FOTSL) are sponsoring this class and hope that you will become inspired to create your own arrangements for home or gifts.  As an added incentive, everyone attending will be entered in a drawing for the arrangements which Cathy will be making.  In February, Cathy won the top design award, Award of Design Excellence, at the Connecticut Flower and Garden show in Hartford.
