The Mystic Garden Club 2008 Annual Meeting was a really fantastic event. It was held at the Mystic Arts Center, where the artwork was a beautiful backdrop for the lovely ladies and their decorated hats. Our new members were welcomed to the club at that time with Amy Laidlaw and Pauline Grippo able to participate. Our scholarship recipient was introduced to the group. Our retiring President, Gail Ettinger, thanked all of her board members and passed the presidential pin along to the new co-presidents, Betsy Van Winkle and Ceil Gallup.
There were prizes for the most creative hats with
- The Most Mystic going to Betsy Van Winkle whose red, white & blue creation was very patriotic
- The Most Elegant to Joy Molloy
- The Greenest to Sue Johnson with her asparagus decorate hat.
- The Most Suited to her Personality to Cam Bertsche whose hat was decorated with a whooping crane.
The lunch was absolutely delicious and the year ended on a particularly high note. The results from the Plant Sale exceeded anything that was done before. So a special thanks to everyone for donating their plants to this worthwhile fundraiser for the Mystic & Noank Library.
