It was a gathering of the Mad Hatters when five local garden clubs got together in Cedaredge on June 7. The annual luncheon was hosted this year by the Four Seasons Garden Club, and everything had a touch of “The Mad Hatter.” Wearing “mad hats” are, from the left, Four Seasons members Janie Metz, Kathleen Morse, Mimi Gay, Rita Bodine, Virginia Menke, Kathy Conlon, Esther Summers, Marge Keet, Shirley Hutchinson and Marilyn Stumpf. Displayed on the table are theme decorated hats, one from each of the other clubs. From the left are Friends and Flowers Garden Club, Rose Garden Club, Paonia Garden Club and if you look closely you can see a tall “mad hat” by the Plant & Dig Garden Club behind the center hat.
Five local garden clubs get together once a year with each club taking a turn hosting the luncheon. This year's event was held at St. Philip's Catholic Church in Cedaredge on June 7.
Members of Four Seasons Garden Club were hosts for this year's event. They chose "The Mad Hatter" for their theme.
The mad hat theme was carried out with decorations, crazy hats, even the menu consisting of Tweedle Dum and Tweedle tea, king's coffee with sprinkles and clotted cream, Cheshire cat nibbles, rabbit sticks, Alice keyhole salad, Klukie noodle casserole, with queen's delight cupcakes for dessert.
Other participating garden clubs were Friends and Flowers, Rose Garden Club, Paonia Garden Club and Plant and Dig Garden Club.
