It's our tradition to decorate holiday wreaths on a Saturday morning in November each year. We meet at the Antioch Senior Center. The members bring their creative skills, tools and additional decorating supplies to make beautiful evergreen wreaths. Those wreaths then displayed through out the Antioch Village. It's always filled of fun and a great way to get in the holiday spirit.
Many of the beautiful wreaths you'll be seeing around town have been created for and donated to the community by the Antioch Garden Club. On November 18th, AGC members attended the annual wreath decorating event at the Antioch Village Center. Mary Yott did an outstanding job in her first year as project chairperson. The wreaths turned out beautifully, and we all had a great time getting into the holiday spirit!
Antioch's mayor Scott Gartner stopped in to deliver coffee and donuts from Dunkin Donuts, and to thank us for all we do for the community.
The wreaths were purchased from Floral Acres, they were fresh and beautiful!! Wreaths were hard to come by this year and we are thankful Floral Acres was able to deliver!!
On November 20th, 13 AGC members attended the annual wreath decorating event at the Antioch Senior Center. Our special project chairwoman Carol Sackschewsky was leading the way with her little helper granddaughter Nora. S&S nursery once again ordered the 28 wreaths and 6 swags for us to decorate and had them ready for pickup at 8:00 am the day of the event. We all enjoyed decorating the wreath and thinking about the location around Antioch that our wreath would be hanging, hoping to bring in the start of the joyous Christmas season for the local visitors to the beautiful and friendly village of Antioch. The Public Works helped with the delivery and many members also helped delivering wreaths to their designated locations. Carol Sackschewsky wishes to thank all those who made this event so successful. We missed some of our members, but welcomed new members to this fun filled morning.
Under the leadership of our special project "Wreath Decoration" chairwoman Carol Sackschewsky, 8 AGC members gathered together at carol's husband Roy's workshop, decorated nearly 30 holiday wreaths and swags. Roy's workshop provided members with an optimal working environment and tools, as well as spaces for social distance during this unusual pandemic time. It was so wonderful to see many beautiful designs created from there that kept our holiday spirit high and the creative juice flow. Those wreaths and swags have been hung all over the Antioch Village in this holiday season 2020. The Antioch Garden Club is very proud of making our village a beautiful place to live.
