It was snowy, windy and cold on the day the club planned to have our Wreath Decoration done for the community. Nine brave and enthusiastic AGC members ventured out to the Antioch Senior Center. Under the leadership of the Wreath Decoration Committee co-chair Julie Tsuchida and Mary Spliedt-Dietze, the event went smoothly and was a complete success. Everyone brought their creative skills, ideas and tools, plus decorative elements, numerous beautiful evergreen wreaths were made. It was full of fun and holiday spirits. Members were also fortified with donuts and coffee donated by Dunkin Donuts. The wreaths were then delivered and hung throughout the Antioch Village with help of Cindy Cartner's husband-Ted. Many thanks to everyone who took part in this event. You Rock!
We had another successful wreath decoration event this Saturday Nov. 23rd at the Antioch Senior center. The committee chair Carol Sackschewsky and her husband Roy did a superb job to organize the event. They got all the supplies ordered, delivered and set up the working place ahead of the time, also entertained members with coffee and donuts. What a better way to kick off the holiday season than that! Thank you, Carol and Roy! We have total 24 people participated, also include a new member, friends of the members and ladies from the Antioch historical society. More than 30 beautiful wreathes and swages were decorated. Everyone got their creative juices flow and holiday spirit high. These creations are being hung all over the Village of Antioch. We are very proud of "Cultivating a Nicer Community".

What a great fun time we had at our wreath decorating event. Despite of cold and windy weather, 15 members showed up. It's our tradition every year in November to get together making holiday wreathes and swags for the Antioch community. The beautiful wreathes then hung all over the public buildings in the city. It's a great way to boost the holiday spirit. Members brought their creative skills, ideas and tools to make this a memorable event for the holiday season.
