Wreath-making fundraiser

Hanging a fresh wreath kicks off the holiday season and fills the home with festive fragrance. Let us supply you with the materials to make your own traditional, mixed-green wreath from scratch. 

The Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Association of Granville & Person Counties (EMGVAGP) is offering a Holiday Wreathmaking Workshop December 7th, from 9am till noon, in the auditorium of the Person County Office Building (304 S. Morgan Street, Roxboro, NC). This event is a fundraiser in support of EMGVAGP’s future community volunteer projects.

A $25 registration fee (cash or check only) will cover everything needed to create one Festive Holiday Wreath. Included will be the wreath form, wire, live greenery, and ribbon. Registration is required by December 2nd.  Call 336-504-2815 to reserve your place or ask for more information. Seating is limited. We hope to hear from you soon.

Extension Master Gardener Volunteers will be available to assist participants in creating their holiday wreath creation.
