Altrusa visits Patchwork Gardens


Gamma White and Brenda Mossbarger, two well-known local businesswomen and longtime members of Altrusa International of Washington C.H., Inc., stand beside a welcome sign at Patchwork Gardens as members of the club arrive for a late-May outing to the Wilt family greenhouses. The evening started with a picnic supper supplied by BB’s Cakes & More, continued with a demonstration on different types of flowers for various settings, then concluded with the club members being set loose to select flowers for planters of their own. Employees of the business stayed after hours to assist. Most of Altrusa’s program meetings during the year feature organizations or projects to which the community service organization can donate money or volunteer to contribute labor—this was a rare just-for-fun “spring fling” to end the club year. The committee that will begin working most industriously during the summer will be the Service/Loving Spoonsful Committee members, as they take charge of the local club’s major annual fundraiser. The tasting luncheon has attracted ever more patrons during the previous five years, with increasingly large sums of money duly donated to three selected local causes. This year’s benefit is scheduled for Oct. 8 at the Commission on Aging.


Christy Bryant, head floral designer for the Wilt family’s Patchwork Gardens, and Altrusan Janet Martin, the trusted seasonal employee who proposed the event, bring a planter closer to their audience during the local Altrusa club’s spring outing.
