Garden Party 2017

The Guild held its 25th annual Garden Party on Sunday, June 25, from 5-8 p.m at the home of Drs. Hyacinth Paul and Malay Dey, located at 10819 Mariam Lane, Dayton. The annual Garden Party is always a favorite.

The weather could not have been more perfect–sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Everyone gathered around the azure pool to mix and mingle. Many wandered the extensive gardens filled with colorful blossoms, shady trees, water features, arched gateways and massive stone outcroppings. It was a relaxed and beautiful setting. A light dinner buffet was served with spicy meatballs, croissant sandwiches, a variety of cheeses, ramaki and other delights. Topping everything off was a selection of luscious sweets.

A. J. Brown & Sons Nursery of Phillipsburg donated a knockout rose bush and the fern leaf buck thorn tree as door prizes. What a wonderful way to kick summer into high gear!

Just under a hundred Guild members and their friends gathered for the annual Garden Party  on Sunday, June 26, from  4-7 p.m. at the gracious home of Lois and Roger Sutherland.


This is always one of the highlights of the summer for attendees. A light dinner buffet was served around the pool with the upbeat sounds of a steel drum drifting in the air.

Chair Kathy Brown and her committee of Helen Miller and Carolyn Szoke did a wonderful job in making the event inviting and fun. Kathy presented the Guild’s BRAVO! Award to Jane Reynolds for her sustained and extensive service to the Guild over a long period of time. Congratulations Jane!



2015 What a Beautiful Day for our Marvelous Annual Event


The home of Kimberly and Greg Robinson was the setting for our 2015 Garden Party on Sunday, June 28. Kimberly’s Master Gardener talents showed beautifully throughout the expansive landscaped yard. Guild members and guests wandered the grounds meeting and greeting new and old friends.  To cap the evening, everyone enjoyed a light supper and fine beverages. Congratulation to Chairs Kathy Brown and Helen Miller for a job well done.
